Too often Indigenous peoples have been portrayed as being without a future, destined either to disappear or assimilate into settler society. This book asserts quite the opposite: Indigenous peoples are not in any sense out of time in our contemporary world. Shaping the Future on Haida Gwaii shows how Indigenous peoples not only continue to have a future but are at work building many different futuresfor themselves and for their nonIndigenous neighbors. Through the experiences of the Haida First Nation, this book explores these possible futures in detail, demonstrating how Haida ways of thinking about time, mobility, and political leadership are at the heart of contemporary strategies for addressing the dilemmas that come with life under settler colonialism.
