How Language Shapes the Way We Think:
Harvey Feit is a professor emeritus in the Dept of Anthropology at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. He has done important ethnographic work on the Cree (Iiyiyuu) in the James Bay region of Hudson Bay, in Quebec, Canada. He has been an advocate for them in their struggle against the Quebec Hydro dam and other hydro projects.

7. Cree hunting territories, anthropology, history and the problem of objectivity

9. The Cree and animal persons
I am interested in the Cree and their ways of life. Cold climate living. When I'm in N.Maine thinking 20 below is cold, I try to think about what the temps might be near Hudson Bay. I'm sure it's easier to feel autonomous up that way too. I can only imagine how beautiful spring must be once June hits.
