Perhaps more than any other region, the North has interested researchers and development professionals as the part of Canada where aboriginal people have the greatest potential to create self-reliant communities based on aboriginal ways of doing things.

Northern Aboriginal Communities: Economies and Development, as a collection of case studies and articles, shows the aboriginal peoples' initiative in overcoming economic obstacles to self-reliance. This book is of special interest to educators, researchers, decision-makers, students and others with an interest in native people in Canada.
