520 |a As the settler state of Canada expanded into Indigenous lands, two traditions clashed in a bruising series of asymmetrical encounters over land use and ownership. One site of conflict was KahnawaÌ€:ke. The Laws and the Land delineates the route from pre-contact and early contact ways of sharing the land to the establishment of KahnawaÌ€:ke within the French seigneurial system, land use under KahnawaÌ€:ke law, and the colonizing push to impose the Indian Act and private property, little short of an invasion spearheaded by bureaucrats. This book is connected to larger issues of membership in Indigenous nations, communal versus individual property rights, governance and inequality.
