Myth Understandings: First Contact, Over and Over Again

This workshop builds upon a conference entitled “Worlds in Collision:  Critically Analyzing Aboriginal and European Contact Narratives”, held at UVic in February 2002.  Papers derived from that conference will be published next year by UBC Press in a volume entitled Myth and Memory:  Rethinking Stories of Indigenous-European Contact.  This paper is the introduction to that volume.
