Rate this:

In 1992, the Algonquins of Pikwakanagan, the only federallyrecognized Algonquin reserve in Ontario, launched a comprehensive landclaim. The action not only drew attention to the fact that Canada hadacquired Algonquin land without negotiating a treaty, but it alsofocused attention on the two-thirds of Algonquins who have never beenrecognized as Indian. Fractured Homeland is BonitaLawrence's stirring account of how the claim forced federallyunrecognized Algonquin in Ontario to confront both the issue of theirown identity and the failure of Algonquin leaders - who launchedthe claim - to develop a more inclusive vision of nationhood.
