Whose land is it? Yours or mine. Ever since European contact in Canada the question of Native land ownership has been a hot issue. This paper will recall early European contact in Canada, their move westward, the resistance to the encroachment and the land appropriation by the Europeans. Dolly discusses the recent settlements of the Native land claims in Canada and the United States. She talks of how the government would like 95‰ of the territory that is rich in natural resources. Dolly tells other Natives not to sign treaties that will extinguish thier right to the land and that each band member should benefit from royalties from the extraction of their natural resources.
