Museum of Northern British Columbia to host Book Launch for Tsimshian historical review by Charles Menzies

The latest book to chronicle the history of the North Coast is set to make its debut and Prince Rupert's Museum of Northern British Columbia will play the host for the Book Launch as Professor Charles R. Menzies releases his latest work People of the Saltwater: An Ethnography of Git lax m'oon.

The event takes place Thursday August 18th from 7 to 9 PM, with the author in attendance to offer up some background to his work which explores the history of the ancient Tsimshian community.

The early pre-release notes outline that his latest book puts a focus on the Tsimshian people and their enduring place in the modern world.

Mr. Mezies is a member of the Gitxaala Nation, and is a Professor with the Department of Anthropology at UBC.

He is frequently called up on by the media across British Columbia to help provide context, history  and background to a range of issues on First Nations and relations with the provincial and federal governments.

A review of some of his previous releases can be found from the UBC website
