Author of:

Reserve Memories: The Power of the Past in a Chilcotin Community (Lincoln, Nebraska: University of Nebraska, 2002). The Chilcotin people have lived in relative isolation for over five centuries in what is known as west central British Columbia, and they still remain one of the more traditional Aboriginal communities in northwestern North America. Using years of field work, Dinwoodie explores how myths and narratives of the past have helped this Northern Athabaskan community to understand and adapt to the changes in contemporary society.
