A frontier place, Canada's North is an interface in which competing educational, historical, and cultural paradigms collide, intersect, and coalesce. The unique nature of this Northern mosaic rests upon the shared experience of social disorientation and culture shock. A collection of fourteen timely essays that investigate the experience of Canadian culture above the 53rd Parallel, Horizons North is at once academic and personal, analytic and discursive - offering insights on the subject of cultural cringe and social transition to critics, scholars, students and any others interested in Aboriginal and Northern studies. The efficacy of Aboriginal systems of justice, challenges of pedagogy in the North, and problems of identity created by Canada's colonial past are just three of the important issues investigated in this volume.
