Cheryl D. Guglielmo, Rhode Island College

An honors proposal for research regarding American and Canadian governmental resolutions of Inidian land claims.


In the recent past and present both governments (United States and Canada) have had to deal directly and indirectly with a "new problem", land claims brought by native peoples. This paper will attempt to discern the similarities and differences in the attitudes displayed by each government and their handling of land claims.
