Eagle Down is Our Law: Witsuwit'en Law, Feasts, and Land Claims by anthropologist Antonia Mills presents her testimony and contextual information about the 1991 court case, Delgamuukw v. the Queen. The Witsuwit'en and Gitksan of British Columbia argued that they maintained their inherent Aboriginal title to their traditional territories in a province that has historically seen few treaties signed.
In 1985 and 1986, ninety-year-old Witsuwit'en Chief, Maxlaxlex, Johnny David, was the first Witsuwit'en to give Commission Evidence in the Delgamuukw land claims case in which the Witsuwit'en and Gitxsan of Northern British Columbia were battling for title to their traditional territories. Hang on to These Words presents the actual transcripts of the questions and answers between lawyers working on both sides and this knowledgeable and outspoken Native elder who spoke in his own language and whose words were then translated by an interpreter into English.
