Riassunto: In 1979, a group of scholars specializing in Tsimshian studies and members of the Tsimshian community met in the coastal village of Hartley Bay, British Columbia, to share insights on Tsimshian culture and history. This volume, a result of that gathering, examines Tsimshian culture from the prehistoric period to the recent past, and includes contributions from such diverse perspectives as archaeology, linguistics and social anthropology. The contributors demonstrate a balance between current fieldwork and careful archival analysis, as they build on the voluminous materials that are a legacy of the scholarship of such major figures as Boas, Barbeau, Tate and Garfield. The book moves beyond earlier studies in presenting interpretations of previously described aspects of the Tsimshian culture, including the crest system, which is shared with other northwest groups, and the participation of the Tsimshian in the "non-native" economy of the region. There is also much original material on such subjects as shamanism, basketry, masking, and feasting.
