The aftermath of the Treaty of Utrecht was a colonial site where natives and Europeans voiced their claims to territory using similar legal arguments (rights of discovery, cession, purchase, conquest). By looking at how the Wabanaki negotiated their disputes over land and forced the Europeans to take seriously their claims, this chapter shows that dispossession was not a legally silent process for indigenous peoples nor was it a straightforward one for European colonisers.
