520 8  Annotation|bIn the pre-reserve era, Aboriginal bands in 
       the northern plains were relatively small multicultural 
       communities that actively maintained fluid and inclusive 
       membership through traditional kinship practices. These 
       practices were governed by the Law of the People as 
       described in the traditional stories of Wîsashkêcâhk, or 
       Elder Brother, that outlined social interaction, marriage,
       adoption, and kinship roles and responsibilities. In Elder
       Brother and the Law of the People, Robert Innes offers a 
       detailed analysis of the role of Elder Brother stories in 
       historical and contemporary kinship practices in Cowessess
       First Nation, located in southeastern Saskatchewan. He 
       reveals how these tradition-inspired practices act to 
       undermine legal and scholarly definitions of "Indian" and 
       counter the perception that First Nations people have 
       internalized such classifications. He presents Cowessess's
       successful negotiation of the 1996 Treaty Land Agreement 
       and their high inclusion rate of new "Bill-C31s" as 
       evidence of the persistence of historical kinship values 
       and their continuing role as the central unifying factor 
       for band membership. Elder Brother and the Law of the 
       People presents an entirely new way of viewing Aboriginal 
       cultural identity on the northern plains.
