19. BUILDING A BLOCKADE TIMELINE → Create a timeline of the Kitkatla fact pattern as detailed in the Workshop #1 materials on the project page (In building your case timeline, pay particular attention to the suggested DOCUMENTS to focus on in the Negotiation File. Keep in mind the bigger picture timeline we looked at during our in-person class as depicted below. This should serve as a starting template in building your "Kitkatla" specific timeline. Insert the Kitkatla fact pattern (which includes actions for all parties involved in the dispute) into the title timeline template. For example, in the various documents provided on the project page, can you roughly pinpoint the date of first contact (i.e., year) between Kitkatla (who are part of the larger Tsimshian Nation) and Europeans? What evidence is there in the various documents of Kitkatla's existing rights and title being asserted or extinguished? In the various documents is there evidence of the duty to consult/accommodate being met by the Provincial and/or Federal Crown? Is there evidence of exclusive use and occupation of the land in question pre-contact (as set out in the Delgamuukw test for proving title)? Can the CMTs be dated? etc. KEEP IN MIND THIS TIMELINE MAY ALSO INCLUDE LEADING CASES AND RATIOS.
