Postcolonial Sovereignty? The Nisga'a Final Agreement
Format: Paperback
Text Content Territories: Indigenous Canadian; First Nations; Nisga'a;

The 1999 Nisga'a agreement covering part of NW British Columbia was truly the first postcolonial land claims settlement in Canada, the author argues. The book analyzes the impact the agreement has on federal/provincial/First Nations relations and in a concise manner examines the major terms of the agreement. She notes that the agreement marks a major departure from previous agreements with First Nations and outlines the opposition, including two court challenges, mounted against the agreement.
