Epilogue

In November 1995, as part of a Gitksan-Nisga'a protocol under the BC treaty process, representatives of Gitksan houses with territories in the Nass watershed presented their report, Tribal Boundaries in the Nass Watershed, to Joe Gosnell, president of the Nisga'a Tribal Council. Copies were also presented to the provincial minister of Aboriginal affairs, John Cashore, and to the federal minister of Indian affairs, Ron Irwin. Although the Nisga'a undertook to respond to the report in 1996 and again in 1997, no response has been received to date, nor have the federal and provincial governments responded to it.

On 15 February 1996, the Nisga'a Agreement-in-Principle (AIP) was signed by representatives of the Nisga'a Tribal Council, British Columbia, and Canada. The AIP designated as "Nisga'a Lands" a territory of 1,930 square kilometres that extended up to, but not beyond, the Kinskuch River, which is slightly north of the tribal boundary between the Gitanyow and the Nisga'a territories as described in this book. This parcel of land represents 20 per cent of the lands to which the Nisga'a can prove Aboriginal title on the basis of available evidence, not less than 10 per cent as claimed.

Most significantly for the Gitksan and the Gitanyow, the AIP intends to allow the Nisga'a to manage wildlife with the game harvest quotas in the Nass watershed extending nearly to the Blackwater area, more than 100 kilometres north of the Nisga'a boundary at the Tchitin River, and to manage fisheries in the entire Nass watershed. In addition, the AIP intends to provide the Nisga'a with six "fee simple" allotments well within Gitanyow and Gitksan territories.

In 1996 representatives of the Gitanyow and Gitksan houses presented their concerns about the above provisions to British Columbia's Select Standing Committee on Aboriginal Affairs and stressed a concern about the precedent for treaty negotiations that would be set by a Nisga'a treaty based on the AIP. In its final report, July 1997, the standing committee
