Borders between States are modern legal constructions. With colonial expansion, indigenous communities came to be cut into several pieces by many territorial boundaries. This is the case of the 49th parallel which serves as the border between Canada and the United States. How have indigenous peoples resisted the spatial imposition of these linear legal fictions? Elements of responses with the historian Patrick Lozar, specialist of the Indigenous Communities of the interior region of the NorthWest Pacific.
