Travail salarié et production de personnes chez les innus (Québec)

Wage Labor and the Production of Persons Among the Innus (Quebec)
Émile Duchesne
p. 175-199

Abstracts

This article shows how the Innus of Unamen Shipu – an indigenous band of nomadic hunters and gatherers of the Algonquian linguistic family – negotiated their relation to wage work since their settlement in the 1950s. Nowadays, because of governmental assimilation pressures, wage work ensures the greatest part of Innu material subsistence. However, the hunting and gathering mode of production never disappeared and still has an important place in the life of the Innus in Unamen Shipu. I explain this continuity by the importance of this activity in the production of persons and social relations specific to the Innu culture.
