Description:

This paper focuses on the phenomenon of First Nations protests over land claims in contemporary Canada, which it explains are a regular occurrence. Characteristic of these protests is an apparent disconnect between First Nations peoples and mainstream Canadian society over the concept of land. While most Canadians tend to understand land in terms of property values, and resale potential in real estate markets, the paper notes, it is clear from such confrontations as Oka in the 1990s and the recent protests last year in southern Ontario, that Aboriginal Canadians perceive the land and their relationship to it in a radically different sense.
