About the Author

Paulette F. C. Steeves (Cree-Metis) is an associate professor of sociology and Canada Research Chair Tier II Indigenous History Healing and Reconciliation at Algoma University. She is also an adjunct faculty at Mount Allison University.


"Writing in the vein of scholars such as Vine Deloria Jr., Paulette Steeves's critique of the 'Clovis-first' model of peopling of the Americas both engages with and moves beyond current ideas about how and when people first came to these lands. The research presented in this book questions the ways archaeologists have traditionally constructed narratives of movement and arrival without considering Indigenous ways of knowing. This is an important and timely contribution to the field."-Kisha Supernant (Metis), associate professor of anthropology at the University of Alberta
"Paulette Steeves decenters Western power and authority over Indigenous thought, voice, inclusion, and history. The result is an act of healing that benefits both Indigenous people and academic scholarship."-Randall H. McGuire, Distinguished Professor of Anthropology at SUNY Binghamton University
"A timely analysis of the ethnocentric influences on past and present scientific inquiry and archaeological practice from the perspective of an Indigenous archaeologist. Steeves brings together a host of voices espousing the importance of contextual relationships in hypothesis development and archaeological analysis."-Kathleen Holen, director of the Center for American Paleolithic Research
