The World is Our Witness

The Historic Journey of the Nisga?a into Canada

Author/Illustrator/Editor: Tom Molloy, Donald Ward

The Final Agreement of Canada’s Nisga’a Treaty is a major milestone in the history of aboriginal and government negotiations. This ground-breaking treaty recognizes the right of the Nisga’a people to live where they have always lived, and to own and control the land they live on. The World Is Our Witness traces the history of the Nisga’a and their claim, details the elements of the treaty, and offers an analysis of the characters, political intrigue, and opposition to this historic deal. It provides an essential foundation for understanding the future of Native American land claims and battles for recognition.

“…fascinating…Molloy’s book is a rarity: a story of negotiations and reconciliation.”
– Graham Fraser, The Toronto Star
