Trigger's work integrates insights from archaeology, history, ethnology, linguistics, and geography.

Trigger's work integrates insights from archaeology, history, ethnology, linguistics, and geography. This wide knowledge allows him to show that, far from being a static prehistoric society quickly torn apart by European contact and the fur trade, almost every facet of Iroquoian culture had undergone significant change in the centuries preceding European contact. Trigger's work integrates insights from archaeology, history, ethnology, linguistics, and geography.

Scholarly and thorough, "The Children of Aataentsic" is an outstanding contribution to ethnohistorical studies of the Huron people, the Jesuit mission to Huronia and the colony of New France.

The Children of Aataentsic book.

The Children of Aataentsic revises widely accepted interpretations of Indian behaviour and challenges .

The Children of Aataentsic revises widely accepted interpretations of Indian behaviour and challenges cherished myths about the actions of some celebrated Europeans during the "heroic age" of Canadian history. In a new preface, Trigger describes and evaluates contemporary controversies over the ethnohistory of eastern Canada. In The Children of Aataentsic my main objective was to demonstrate that it was possible to write a history of a native people that was not focused exclusively on their relations with Europeans.

Trigger's work integrates insights from archaeology, history, ethnology, linguistics, and geography. The Huron were only one of hundreds of Indian groups that were dispersed or lost their independence as a result of European activities.

Trigger's work integrates insights from archaeology, history, ethnology, linguistics, and geography. This wide knowledge allows him to show that, far from being a static prehistoric society quickly torn apart by European contact and the fur trade, almost every facet of Iroquoian culture had undergone significant change in the centuries preceding European contact. He argues convincingly that the European impact upon native cultures cannot be correctly assessed unless the nature and extent of precontact change is understood. His study not only stands Euro-American stereotypes and fictions on their heads, but forcefully and consistently interprets European and Indian actions, thoughts, and motives from the perspective of the Huron culture. The Children of Aataentsic revises widely accepted interpretations of Indian behaviour and challenges cherished myths about the actions of some celebrated Europeans during the "heroic age" of Canadian history. In a new preface, Trigger describes and evaluates contemporary controversies over the ethnohistory of eastern Canada.
