"Object Lives and Global Histories in Northern North America demonstrates how objects can be related to such diverse themes as status, masculinity, imperial and diplomatic relations, craftsmanship, perseverance of Indigenous traditions, cultural hybridity, personal relationships and gift-giving, consumerism, ways of knowing, and health and healing. It is a sustained application of material culture theory to a diverse range of Indigenous material culture that keeps the objects front and centre." Michelle Hamilton, University of Western Ontario
"Ultimately, Object Lives and Global Histories provides a broader appreciation of multidisciplinary approaches to Indigenous material cultures. It also encourages scholars, museum workers, and others to delve deep, to engage in slow or concentrated looking and multi-sensory explorations, as well as multi-vocal dialogues-to listen, to learn, and to honour the abundance of knowledges that function outside the walls of the museums, the archives, and institutional frameworks. It offers insights as to how decentre and reframe historical analyses of objects by bringing lives to bear on their existence." RACAR
