Tribal Boundaries in the Nass Watershed was written as part of the negotiations between the Gitksan and the Nisga'a who have competing territorial claims of ownership and jurisdiction in the upper Nass River watershed.What is assembled here is probably the most significant body of evidence ever compiled to show the existence of Aboriginal title anywhere in North America. The authors demonstrate Gitksan ownership of this territory by drawing on a variety of evidence.This book is indispensable to anyone interested in treaty issues and processes, indigenous legal systems and dispute resolution, anthropology, and Native history, not only in the Pacific Northwest, but anywhere where land claims are at stake.
