Online Hoopla Collection. In modern parlance this is a legal designation used to refer to members of Indian bands under treaty.
Historically, the term Indian is believed to have originated from the misidentification of the indigenous people of the New World by European explorers, who thought they had reached India. Although the colonial origins of the term caused the usage of Indian to fall into disfavour briefly, it is widely used today by Natives and non-Natives alike as a useful collective term.
When more specificity is required, the terms used by various aboriginal groups and subgroups to describe themselves e. Louisiana: the French territories south of the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico between the date when Fort Mobile was established on the Gulf coast and During this period, the French territo-ries consisted of the Mississippi-Missouri watershed; more precisely, the lands on the east side of the Mississippi extending to the western boundary of the British colonies, and the lands extending one to two hundred miles from the west bank of the Mississippi River.
After the Treaty of Paris was signed in , the French territory west of the Mississippi River was ceded to Spain, while the territory east of the Mississippi came under British jurisdiction. These canoemen were seasonal labourers, who did not travel into the fur country beyond the Great Lakes. In , Manitobas provincial boundaries were extended further north, decreasing the size of the North West Territories.
In the Yukon Territory was established as a separate territory, and Quebecs boundary was moved north the same year.

Michael Freemark. Three years ago, when I first met Talbert Faircloth and his wife, Dora, I found it very hard to believe the story that they told me. Talbert was sick at the time, and jobless and angry.
Two years earlier he had been carried breathless out of the cotton mill on a stretcher, never to return to work again. I found it hard to believe that thousands of workers in the South's largest and oldest industry could have been afflicted by a crippling disease for years and not have known that they had it or even what caused it. In time, I learned that Talbert's story — like that of 35, other Southern textile workers — was so wrought with truth and so difficult for the region's most powerful industry to accept, that it had been suppressed and ignored for decades.
Julia M. Divorce is at once a widespread reality and a painful decision, so it is no surprise that this landmark study of its long-term effects should both spark debate and find a large audience.
In this compelling, thought-provoking book, Judith Wallerstein explains that, while children do learn to cope with divorce, it in fact takes its greatest toll in adulthood, when the sons and daughters of divorced parents embark on romantic relationships of their own. Wallerstein sensitively illustrates how children of divorce often feel that their relationships are doomed, seek to avoid conflict, and fear commitment.
Failure in their loving relationships often seems to them preordained, even when things are going smoothly. As Wallerstein checks in on the adults she first encountered as youngsters more than twenty-five years ago, she finds that their experiences mesh with those of the millions of other children of divorce, who will find themselves on every page.
This book brings together in compact form a broad scientific and sociopolitical view of US wetlands. This primer lays out the science and policy considerations to help in navigating this branch of science that is so central to conservation policy, ecosystem science and wetland regulation.
It gives explanations of the attributes, functions and values of our wetlands and shows how and why public attitudes toward wetlands have changed, and the political, legal, and social conflicts that have developed from legislation intended to stem the rapid losses of wetlands. The book describes the role of wetland science in facilitating the evolution of a rational and defensible system for regulating wetlands and will shed light on many of the problems and possibilities facing those who quest to protect and conserve our wetlands.
