  • Doctoral thesis. Study of the effects of commercial, state and industrial activities on the Carrier Indians of Northern British Columbia, Canada, and the ways in which the Carriers have adapted to, or coped with, these activities in order to maintain a bush economy (hunting, trapping, and fishing) and social institutions which ensure the distribution of resources between Carrier households. This study identifies material changes which have led to changes in the ownership and use of bush resources, and the structure and function of institutions in contemporary Carrier society.
