This course is designed to provide students with an introduction to the issues surrounding land claim agreements and self-government in the Northwest Territories, as well as transboundary jurisdictions of the Yukon, Alaska, Nunavut and the circumpolar world. Students will be introduced to the historical context of law, Treaties and Aboriginal rights within the Canadian Constitution including the concepts of internal colonialism, decolonization, and Aboriginal self-government. This course examines, in detail, claim negotiations and settled claims in the Northwest Territories, with particular reference to the management of natural resources. Finally, students will be introduced to aspects of self-government policies and agreements, probing the significance of a land-based economy to the establishment of effective and sustainable indigenous government.
