The focus of this paper is the Algonquin Golden Lake First Nation land claim being negotiated with the Ontario and Canadian governments at the time of writing. It sets out to provide information about the land claim based on documents from Golden Lake and the two levels of government. The first section outlines the historical basis for the claim and proposes why negotiations with Golden Lake are necessary. In the second section, the claim itself is examined within the context of ongoing negotiations with the governments of Ontario and Canada. The terms of the claim, the chronology of negotiations, what has been agreed upon to date, and some problems with the process are addressed. Finally, the place of third party interests in, and public opinion about, the process are discussed.
