Suriname was inhabited from about 3000 before Christ when the first Indians came
to the country. The most important Indian tribe in Suriname was the Arowak tribe.

No treaties were concluded between Canada and First Nations for half a century
after the Williams treaties. However, treaty making resumed in 1973 in the form
of comprehensive claims agreements - also known as modern treaties.
These formal agreements are recognized as treaties by Section 35(3) of the
Constitution Act, 1982 and are negotiated in order to provide a clear, certain
and long-lasting definition of rights to land and resources for First Nations
and Inuit people, in areas not already covered by existing treaties. The first
modern-day treaty negotiated was the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement
signed in 1975.
Since 1975 fourteen comprehensive claims have been settled, seven of these in
the Yukon and four in the Northwest Territories. The largest of these agreements
is that between Canada and the Inuit of the Eastern Arctic, which led to the
creation in 1999 of the new northern territory of Nunavut.
