Recovering the Land: Native Americans & the Law
Indigenous peoples in the U.S. and around the world are struggling to recover their lands. From the South Pacific to Minnesota to British Columbia in Canada, native activists are mobilizing to reclaim their rights. There are some victories. In March 1997, the government of Argentina returned 300,000 acres to Indians in the northwest region of the country.
