News in Review Native Claims: Growing Frustrations

This News in Review story looks at the stand-off at Gustafsen Lake in Secwepemec (Shuswap) territory in B.C. and the occupation of Ipperwash Provincial Park by Chippewa protesters in Ontario. These events during the summer of 1995 are the points of departure for examining the larger issues of land claims and the growing frustration of First Nations groups. Also covered is a blockade by Mi'kmaq protesters asserting their fishing rights on the Miramichi River in New Brunswick.
