To Be Free on Our Lands: Coast Tsimshian and Nisga'a Societies in Historical Perspective, 1830-1900 (Ottawa: National Library of Canada, 1993). Cooper's dissertation on the Tsimshian and Nisga'a societies explores their efforts to preserve their identity in a time of crisis after the Europeans made contact. Focusing on political, social, and economic strategies that these similar tribes used Cooper discusses how the tribes were able to retain their cultural identities.
