The Problem of Indigenous Claim Making in Colonial History
This chapter addresses methodological pitfalls historians face when working on indigenous claim making. These problems include: a teleological understanding of dispossession; the paucity of evidence; the difficulty in assessing authorship when indigenous claims rely on colonial records; the confusion between sovereignty and property claims. This chapter also reconsiders the understanding of colonial history in the light of the recovered legal dialogue between indigenous and European peoples over centuries. By Saliha Belmessous
