Canada's Aboriginal peoples have shaped this country in countless ways. Their story is central to the nation's identity --- indeed, the word ?Canada? is derived from the Huron-Haudenosaunee word ?kanata,? which means ?our village.? This title in the acclaimed Kids Book of series is a balanced, in-depth look at the cultures, struggles and triumphs of Canada's first peoples.

Exhaustively researched and reviewed by specialists in the field, this groundbreaking book is by far the most comprehensive of its kind. The detailed illustrations based on museum artifacts, written records of long ago and contemporary scholarship help bring the traditional ways to life for young readers.
