Abstract (summary)

La presente etude questionne, une fois de plus, la nature des relations qui se sont developpees entre les puissances coloniales europeennes et les nations indiennes habitant la vallee du Saint-Laurent. En abordant plus precisement l'histoire des Hurons de Lorette et des rapports qu'ils ont entretenus depuis le XVIIe siecle avec leurs allies, nous chercherons a evaluer s'il existe le maintien d'un ordre politique et juridique amerindien, relativement independant de l'administration coloniale francaise et anglaise. Pour ce faire, nous traiterons de l'occupation territoriale des Indiens de Lorette en analysant les ententes intervenues avec d'autres nations sur le partage et la gestion commune du territoire. Il nous importe egalement de questionner la juridiction francaise et anglaise en ce qui concerne les droits de chasse et de peche des nations "domiciliees". Nous voulons ainsi apporter notre humble contribution a la problematique contemporaine des droits politiques, juridiques et territoriaux de la nation huronne-wendate.

This study questions, once again, the nature of the relationships that developed between the European colonial powers and the Indian nations inhabiting the St. Lawrence Valley. By approaching more precisely the history of the Hurons of Lorette and the relationships they have maintained since the 17th century with their allies, we will seek to evaluate whether there is the maintenance of an Amerindian political and legal order, relatively independent of the French and English colonial administration. To do this, we will deal with the territorial occupation of the Loreto Indians by analyzing the agreements reached with other nations on the sharing and common management of the territory. It is also important for us to question French and English jurisdiction with regard to the hunting and fishing rights of "domiciled" nations. We thus wish to make our humble contribution to the contemporary issue of the political, legal and territorial rights of the Huron-Wendat nation.
