Geography of Hudson Bay Company Documents
Frank Tough (Native Studies, University of Alberta) will lead a special session on the geography of Hudson’s Bay Company documents, and how to navigate the archives for the workshop. Tough has been a leading scholar on the historical geographies of the HBC, and how researchers can use the records to examine historic First Nations fisheries. A special focus will be on the HBC records associated with the traditional territories of the Nipissing and Dokis First Nations.
