    Abstract

    Contrary to initial expectations, the Supreme Court's 1997 Delgamuukw decision has not produced land claims settlements in British Columbia. Instead, the decision hardened the positions of the two governments and the First Nations engaged in the British Columbia treaty process. The resulting impasse has frustrated the First Nations. To contain these feelings and to integrate First Nations more fully into the life of the province, the governments have implemented interim economic measures, and the province now actively consults First Nations concerning development activities on lands on which they may hold Aboriginal rights. The paper considers the impact of these policies and the frustrations of First Nations.
