Research Related to Native Peoples at the University of Saskatchewan, 1912-1983.
Barnett, Don C.; Dyer, Aldrich J.
The volume on University of Saskatchewan graduate theses related to Canadian native peoples (Indian, Inuit, Metis) contains a brief introduction, followed by abstracts of 62 thesis projects (1912-1982), and a final section of statistics, charts, summaries, and discussions related to the abstracted research. Each research abstract consists of three sections: description of the study, research procedures, and findings. The majority of the theses described were written in the 1970s; 31 were in education fields, 10 in archaeology/anthropology, 5 each in history and psychology, 4 in geography, 2 each in sociology and law, and 1 each in economics/political science, English, and social and preventive medicine. Of the theses dealing with specific peoples, eight were on the Cree, two each on the Chipewyan, Inuit, Iroquois, Dogrib, and registered/treaty Indian people, and one each on urban, Slavey, Dakota, Ojibway, Dene, Saulteaux, Metis, and Blackfoot people. The majority of the studies (78%) are descriptive, with 17% historical and 5% experimental. Subjects range from descriptions of prehistoric sites, through community perceptions of important tasks for rural reservation schools, content analyses of depictions of Indian people in elementary textbooks and western comic books, and cross-cultural studies of testing and language perception.
