Summary: "On Being Here To Stay is an interesting, clear, heartfelt argument for re-establishing the relationship between the Aboriginal peoples of Canada and the Canadian state around recognizing and honouring the terms of the treaties that create the grounds on which non-native people may live here. This book reflects a lifetime of thought by a major scholar. It has voice. It has soul.". Codice inventario libreria
What, other than numbers and power, justifies Canada?s assertion of sovereignty and jurisdiction over the country?s vast territory? Why should Canada?s original inhabitants have to ask for rights to what was their land when non-Aboriginal people first arrived? The question lurks behind every court judgment on Indigenous rights, every demand that treaty obligations be fulfilled, and every land-claims negotiation.
Addressing these questions has occupied anthropologist Michael Asch for nearly thirty years. In On Being Here to Stay, Asch retells the story of Canada with a focus on the relationship between First Nations and settlers.
Asch proposes a way forward based on respecting the ?spirit and intent? of treaties negotiated at the time of Confederation, through which, he argues, First Nations and settlers can establish an ethical way for both communities to be here to stay.
Michael Asch is a professor emeritus in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Alberta and a professor (limited term) in the Department of Anthropology and adjunct professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Victoria.
