Nation to Nation explores the promises, diplomacy, and betrayals involved in treaties and treaty making between the United States government and Native Nations. One side sought to own the riches of North America and the other struggled to hold on to traditional homelands and ways of life.

The book consistently demonstrates how and why centuries-old treaties remain living, relevant documents for both Natives and non-Natives in the 21st century.

In the 1978 agreement, the Narragansett relinquished all claims to aboriginal lands in Rhode Island in exchange for eighteen hundred acres, half donated by the state and half purchased from private landowners with $3.5 million in federal funds.5 Two years later, Congress enacted a settlement of the Penobscot, Passamaquoddy, and Maliseet claims, in which the tribes demanded

So the fish divided people at first, and in the end the fish helped to bring people together. And I think that they’re building economic relationships, cultural relationships that never would have been possible before. This kind of

Supreme Court had in 1971 recognized that tribal treaty rights to fish the Great Lakes had survived nearly 140 years of suppression by the state of Michigan. But the Michigan attorney general was fond of saying that the winner of that case, Al Jondreau, an Ojibwe man from the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community, was the only Indian allowed to fish in Michigan.
