Jay Miller is an anthropologist in the old-school Americanist tradition, rescuing, researching, sharing, and writing about cultural contexts, archaeology, history, beliefs, kinship, lifeways, and languages of indigenous peoples across North America. For over four decades, Jay has been especially prolific in the Pacific Northwest, where his record of publication includes several books, over 40 articles in professional journals, and numerous other contributions in smaller publications. Many of these publications represent original research, while others present lost research of forefathers and foremothers found in the depths of university archives, attics, basements, and professional files. Augmenting these works is commentary on method, theory, practice, and politics. Collectively his body of work provides a major contribution to Northwest Anthropology.
To make available the vast amount of information and knowledge found in the writings of Jay Miller, a re-view of twenty-five articles has been assembled—a dozen from the pages of the Journal of Northwest Anthropology (and its predecessor Northwest Anthropological Research Notes) along with thirteen new titles. The memoir is divided into seven major parts: Native Worlds, Kinship and Society, Biographies, Food Factors, and Knowledge Quest, Summing Up, and Appendixes, along with references cited and an index.
Jay Miller's array of articles will stimulate thought about the Indigenous peoples of North America (especially the Northwest Coast) for some time to come... Not afraid to state his opinions forcefully, Miller critiques the work of fellow scholars from the vantage point of his detailed "place-based knowledge," while foregrounding what he has learned from his Indigenous teachers. It's a fun read by an original thinker, with a very helpful introduction to publications and other resources.

Impressive. That's the first word the comes to mind when reading this
collection of Jay Miller's "corrections." This is thick ethnographic
description built upon a solid foundation of fieldwork, enriched by a
comprehensive and critical engagement with more than a century's worth of
published and unpublished scholarship... Throughout Miller is
interpretive and sometimes provocative. As such this is an example of
reflective scholarship that inspires as it motivates.
Keith Thor Carlson (University of Saskatchewan)
An important contribution to Northwest Coast studies, as well as social structures, world views, subsistence, religion, and the significance of the individual.
