Date and Time

Tue November 3, 2020 from 4:00pm to 5:30pm




Join Dr. Patrick Lozar from the Faculty of Humanities to learn how Indigenous leaders on western Vancouver Island, Haida Gwaii and Cape Flattery strategically incorporated the early maritime sea otter fur trade into their existing economies and power structures through the 1780s and 1790s. Learn how they controlled the fur trade for their peoples’ benefit, confounding European and American assumptions about Indigenous people and maintaining power within their own societies and among the maritime traders.
