On June 5

On this day in ...
... 1984, 10 years of negotiations culminated in the signing of the Inuvialuit Final Agreement by the Canadian government and the Inuvialuit people of the Western Arctic. Described as "the first comprehensive land claim agreement signed north of the 60th parallel and only the second in Canada," the Agreement created in the land at issue the nearly 1-million-square-kilometer Inuvialuit Settlement Region. (map credit) Negotiations over the issue of Inuvialuit self-government continue.
