Now in its third edition, I Have Lived Here Since the World Began charts the history of Canada's Native people from first contact to current land claims. The result is a fascinating chronicle that spans 12,000 years and culminates in the headlines of today.

Canada's Native people have inhabited this land since the Ice Age and were already accomplished traders, artisans, farmers, and marine hunters when Europeans first reached their shores. Contact between Natives and European explorers and settlers initially presented an unprecedented period of growth and opportunity. But the two vastly different cultures soon clashed.

"I Have Lived Here Since the World Began provides the general reader with a useful introduction to many aspects of aboriginal Canada's history…The many well-chosen illustrations complement the text superbly." – The Globe and Mail
Arthur J. Ray is a professor emeritus of history at the University of British Columbia, a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, and co-editor of the Canadian Historical Review. He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.

First published in 1995 as I Have Lived Here Since the World Began
