Many Voyages Arthur Wellington Clah

A Tshimshian Man on the Pacific Northwest Coast

First-hand accounts of indigenous people's encounters with colonialism are rare. A daily diary that extends over fifty years is unparalleled. Based on a transcription of Arthur Wellington Clah's diaries, this book offers a riveting account of a Tsimshian man who moved in both colonial and Aboriginal worlds. From his birth in 1831 to his death in 1916, Clah witnessed profound change: the arrival of traders, missionaries, and miners, and the establishment of industrial fisheries, wage labor, and reserves. His many voyages - physical, cultural, and spiritual - provide an unprecedented Aboriginal perspective on colonial relationships on the Pacific Northwest Coast.

Endorsements

"Arthur Wellington Clah's diary is likely the most remarkable document to come into the light of Pacific Northwest Coast history … Surmounting the challenges presented by this rich and at times near impenetrable personal record, Peggy Brock has researched and admirably summarized fifty years of the diary, pulling out key themes and highlighting its many contradictions. This much-needed introduction to a man and an indigenous history of British Columbia and Alaska will change the way we think about our past."—John S. Lutz, author of Makúk: A New History of Aboriginal-White Relations

"Clah's life and diary offer a window into the lives of the Tsimshian political hierarchy of the time and Tsimshian society's interaction with colonialism .. His voyage is a metaphor for the voyage that his own and other indigenous people were also taking in their encounters with colonialism."—Neil Sterritt, consultant in Aboriginal leadership and governance
