The history and development of reserves in Quebec has been varied and complex. To determine the rights and interests of Indians and governments in the reserves the author examines: traditional occupation of lands in Quebec; the period of French sovereignty; the French and English religious missions to the Indians; the establishment of reserves by the Province of Canada; the historic impact of the 1920 Star Chrome Miningdecision upon the Indian interest in reserve lands, and relations between Quebec and Canada thereafter; and the 1975 James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement and the 1978 Northeastern Quebec Agreement.
