I have been looking for the answer to this off and on for days. Has anyone found |
This is what I have come up with so far.
The answer could be Inuit, but I haven't been able to find anything regarding
treaties with the US yet.
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.
See the following for much more comprehensive information.
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.
The Indians lived from hunting and fishery. Most of them were nomads. Few stayed
living at one place in order to live from agriculture.
Over the years, treaties and people from other countries came and went. The people
Suriname became an independent country on November 25, 1975. For more detailed

'The Kootenai were affiliated socially with the neighboring Flathead, Kalispel and Pend Oreilles. In the 1855 Hellgate Treaty, these Tribes ceded to the United States all the land they occupied or claimed in exchange for reservations. However, the Kootenai Tribe of Idaho was not represented at the Treaty and, so, they did not acquire any land.
Now known as the Kootenai Tribe of Idaho, they were the original inhabitants of Boundary County. There are 120 enrolled members and about 75 of them live in a modern village at the 18-acre mission three miles northwest of Bonners Ferry. The Tribe gained international attention on Sept. 20, 1975 when it formally declared war on the United States.'
