Summary: This book makes available the commission evidence that Witsuwit’en elder Johnny David provided before the British Columbia Supreme Court in the ground-breaking land claims caseDelgamuukw v. the Queen. The intent in publishing Johnny David’s commission evidence, and this introduction to it, is to come closer to a time when eagle down can be distributed between the Witsuwit’en and the provincial and federal governments regarding First Nations rights to their traditional territories. That was the intent of Johnny David in giving his commission evidence, as it was the intent of the Witsuwit’en and Gitxsan in theDelgamuukwcourt case. Maxlaxlex
