This chapter, which analyzes the divergent demographic paths of the indigenous populations in the United States and Australia following their encounters with English colonizers, discusses how the property rights of native peoples in both countries vary in different ways and states that these differences have had important implications for the native peoples. It argues that differences arose because of different initial conditions in Australia and the United States, and because of subsequent interactions with native peoples and the settlers. These differences are traced back to the initial conditions of encounter, whether English settlers did or did not recognize indigenous tribes' prior land claims.

Keywords:   indigenous populations, United States, Australia, English colonizers, property rights, native peoples, English settler, land claims
