Discussed by Williams 2007; Tate 2004 and 2005. 11 ‘All our institutions recognize the absolute title of the Crown, subject only to the Indian right of occupancy, and recognize the absolute title of the Crown to extinguish that right’: Johnson v M’Intosh: 588. See also Purdy 2006. On this view and contemporaneous perception of Chief Justice Marshall’s judgments as validating unfettered executive discretion, see Hickford 2011: ch 4.

The Loucheux repeatedly expressed concern that Fort Good Hope would, given periodic hostilities between the Loucheux and McKenzie Esquimaux, fall prey to attacks – perhaps angling to have a trade in guns. McKenzie promised to ‘come to the same place next spring,’ instructing those gathered ‘to have all their peltries & provisions there’ and promising ‘that if they were able to maintain a fort that they should have one’ (Keith 2001: 141). To this, the Loucheux responded that ‘they were not able to hunt for a fort that they often wanted themselves’ (Keith 2001: 141).

In 1763 this permutation of jus gentium titles permitted John Adams to argue that as the king’s tenure in the colonies was based on discovery, it was only a personal feudal one. According to Adams such ‘manorial’ tenure entailed neither sovereignty over the colonists nor ownership of the land, which the colonists now owned in their own right through purchase from the Indians (Adams 2000: 137–39). Rather than signifying a general American acceptance of native title, Adams’ argument that colonial title to Indian lands derived from purchase rather than conquest should thus be seen in the context of the revolutionary repudiation of British sovereignty and eminent domain.
