About this title

Synopsis:

Although Indigenous peoples were the earliest practitioners of law in Canada, their legal systems have often been ignored or overruled by non-Indigenous laws. Under colonialism, Indigenous legal traditions lost much of their influence. Today, however, they are recognized as vital for the preservation of the political autonomy of Aboriginal nations and the development of healthy communities, and they are being reinvigorated in many Aboriginal communities.

The relationship between Indigenous and Canadian legal orders, the importance of Indigenous legal traditions for Aboriginal communities' autonomy, and the ways in which these traditions might be recognized and given space in the Canadian legal landscape are common threads linking the essays in this collection. Examining different aspects of and models for the recognition of Indigenous legal orders, these essays address important issues relating to legal pluralism.

Indigenous Legal Traditions offers new perspectives on reclaiming and preserving the autonomy of Aboriginal communities and in reconciling these communities' relationship with Canadian governments. It will be of interest to a wide audience, including lawyers and legal academics, teachers, students, policy makers, and members of Aboriginal communities.

The Law Commission of Canada is an independent federal law reform agency that advises Parliament on how to improve and modernize Canada's laws.

Contributors include Dawnis Kennedy, Andrée Lajoie, Ghislain Otis, Ted Palys and Wenona Victor, Paulette Regan, and Perry Shawana.
