The Pleasure of the Crown

Anthropology, Law and First Nations

by Dara Culhane Speck

An in depth analysis of the 130 year history of the Aboriginal title issue in British Columbia. Focusing in particular on the Gitksan and Wet'suwet'en case, the book traces the trial of Delgamuukw. v. Regina from its first hearing during 1987-1991, to its successful appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada, which issued a landmark ruling in the case on Dec. 11, 1997. Anthropologist Dara Culhane offers a comprehensive look at how B.C., Canada, and other colonial societies reveal themselves through their court room performances in Aboriginal title litigation.
