From the Introduction ----- The six papers in this volume were originally presented in a symposium at the 1981 annual meeting of the American Society for Ethnohis tory. They are concerned in large part with native economic history and in part with the late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century trade. The essays are linked in a number of ways, especially in their common interest in Indian economic and social adaptations in the context of the fur trade. The authors, who write from the vantage points of three disciplines-anthropology, geo graphy, and history-are all versed in ethnohistory, that is, in "the use of historical and ethnological methods and materials" in order to describe and to analyse, perhaps through time, a particular ethnic group's society and culture, and as a way to make sense of interactions between ethnic groups. Some of the authors are interested in the use of innovative methodo logical techniques to shed light on native economic adaptations, and they report on these here and elsewhere. The individual papers represent a range of approaches to native economic and social history current in fur-trade historiography; it is hoped that they will provoke scholars to refine and delve more deeply into the issues which they raise, as well as suggest productive avenues for further research. Moreover, most of the authors in this volume are concerned with themes which, in the past twenty years or so, have been near the centre of fur-trade scholarship: the identification of Indian motivations in the trade; a determina tion of the degree to which Indians were discriminating consumers and creative participants in the exchange, not just passive recipients of trade goods; and whether or not Indians were dependent upon the trade.
