While the Klondike Gold Rush is one of the most widely known events in Canadian history, particularly outside Canada, the rest of the Yukon’s long and diverse history attracts little attention. Important developments such as Herschel Island whaling, pre-1900 fur trading, the post-Second World War resource boom, a lengthy struggle for responsible government, and the emergence of Indigenous political protest remain poorly understood. Placing well-known historical episodes within the broader sweep of the past, Land of the Midnight Sun gives particular emphasis to the role of First Nations people and the lengthy struggle of Yukoners to find their place within Confederation. This broader story incorporates the introduction of mammoth dredges that scoured the Klondike creeks, the impressive Elsa- Keno Hill silver mines, the impact of residential schools on Aboriginal children, the devastation caused by the sinking of the Princess Sophia, the Yukon’s remarkable contributions to the national First World War effort, and the sweeping transformations associated with the American occupation during the Second World War. Land of the Midnight Sun has long been the standard source for under- standing the history of the territory. This third edition includes a new preface to update readers on developments in the Yukon’s economy, culture, and politics, including Indigenous self-government. Ken S. Coates is Canada Research Chair in Regional Innovation in the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy at the University of Saskatchewan. William R. Morrison is professor emeritus of history at the University of Northern British Columbia. Indigenous Nationals, Canadian Citizens offers a new paradigm for the rela- tionship of Indigenous peoples with the settler societies in Canada. Thomas Courchene argues this model should be preferred to Canadian nationals, Canadian citizens (the traditional Assembly of First Nations vision) as well as to Indigenous nationals, Indigenous citizens (the Trudeau-Chrétien White Paper proposal). Courchene begins with a detailed policy history from first contact to the 150th anniversary of Confederation, followed by chapters on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and recent dramatic and empowering Supreme Court decisions. The two penultimate chapters detail the manner in which this Indigenous nationals/Canadian citizens model has been successfully applied to the Yukon First Nations as well as to the four Inuit Land Claims Agreements. The final substantive chapter applies this model hypothetically to the entirety of the more than seventy First Nations in the province of Saskatchewan. Referred to as the Commonwealth of Sovereign Indigenous Nations (csin), the model would embrace provincial-type powers within, and closely coordinated with, the province of Saskatchewan. Among other features, csin would embody the requisite degree of self-government and scale economies essential for the Saskatchewan-based First Nations to suc- cessfully make the transition to Indigenous nationals and Canadian citizens. Thomas J. Courchene is professor emeritus in the School of Policy Studies and an adjunct professor in the economics department at Queen’s University. 1 7 M Q U P S P R I N G 2 0 1 8 S P E C I F I C AT I O N S Carleton Library Series January 2018 978-0-7735-5212-8 $32.95A CDN, $32.95A US, £26.99 paper 6 x 9 382pp 80 b&w photographs, 6 maps eBook available C A N A D I A N H I S T O R Y • N O R T H E R N S T U D I E S S P E C I F I C AT I O N S Queen’s Policy Studies – Institute of Intergovernmental Relations March 2018 978-1-55339-452-5 $39.95A CDN, $39.95A US, £33.00 paper 6 x 9 240pp eBook available P U B L I C P O L I C Y • I N D I G E N O U S S T U D I E S Indigenous Nationals, Canadian Citizens From First Contact to Canada 150 and Beyond thomas j. courchene Land of the Midnight Sun A History of the Yukon, Third Edition ken s. coates and william r. morrison “A must for anyone interested in the Yukon’s history from the pre-gold rush days through the ‘lean’years and both wars to the present.” The Northern Review
