dc.description.abstract The ownership of Indigenous territories, once occupied exclusively by Indigenous Nations, has never been surrendered, sold or bartered to colonial powers. Indigenous nations in what is called the province of British Columbia, still maintain their inherent title and rights over lands and resources granted to them by the Creator. The objective of this research is to demonstrate, through oral testimonies, that Indigenous nations still possess the true authority and ownership over their respective territories. Based on oral testimonies and traditional knowledge, which are key practices in keeping historical memories strong and alive, it is clear that the sovereign authority and ownership of territories are still being acknowledged amongst Indigenous Nations in British Columbia.1 en_US
