Aboriginal Peoples and the Law

A Critical Introduction

As part of the process of healing and reparation, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission urged a better understanding of Aboriginal law for all Canadians. This book responds to that call, outlining significant legal developments in straightforward, nontechnical language. James Reynolds provides the historical context needed to understand the relationship between Indigenous peoples and settlers and explains key topics such as sovereignty, treaties, fiduciary duties, the honor of the Crown, Aboriginal rights and title, the duty to consult, Indigenous laws, and international declarations. He concludes that rather than leaving the judiciary to sort out essentially political issues, politicians need to take responsibility for this crucial aspect of building a just society.
