Reconciliation Before Its Time


This course examines the career of Wilson Duff as Provincial Anthropologist at the Provincial Museum in Victoria (1950-65) and as a professor in the Anthropology Department at UBC (1965-76). In both roles Wilson worked to understand First Nations peoples and cultures and then conveyed that understanding to an often uncomprehending newcomer population.
