Anthropology and Ethnicity's lnterplay among First Nations in Canada: The case of Quebec

Cristhian Teófilo da Silva


This article presents Quebec as a multicultural province, which is ethnically polarized in such a way as to affect the processes of formation of different styles of ethnology. The data presented here are of three kinds: political chronology, interethnic relations and collective demands. It is our expectation to promote with this brief presentation Quebec's uniqueness as an ethnographic case study for the research of the development of styles of ethnology in national contexts.
