Delgamuukw Trial Transcripts

Proceedings at trial transcripts of the historic Supreme Court of British Columbia case between Gitxsan Hereditary Chief Delgamuukw, also known as Earl Muldoe, suing on his own behalf and on behalf of all the members of the House of Delgamuukw, and others, plaintiffs, and Her Majesty the Queen in right of the Province of British Columbia and the Attorney General of Canada, defendants.

Considered a crucial turning point in treaty negotiations, the court's decision in this case upheld aboriginal title in British Columbia. The BC Treaty Commission's A Lay Person's Guide to DELGAMUUKW (PDF) provides a concise introduction to the topic.

Physical copies of the Delgamuukw transcripts are shelved on the top floor of the UBC Law Library at KEB529.5.L3 B757. The 369 volume transcript consists of 67 volumes bound in black buckram with gold lettering. They are considered reference material, so they cannot be taken out of the library.
