Unjust Relations book.

It's not a book about First Nations cultures or aboriginal peoples' systems .

It's not a book about First Nations cultures or aboriginal peoples' systems of law, but a book about how British/Canadian common law has given meaning to the rights of First Peoples within the social and political system which has engulfed them. The meat of the book is given in eight chapters, each consisting of a court decision of consequence for defining, clarifying, or giving meaning to such concepts and ideas as Indian, reserve, aboriginal right, and so on. To law students and readers of court records the case names are familiar. It is much less well known, but has been critical for Inuit, as Kulchyski points out in discussion.

The Court ruled that the Crown had neglected its fiduciary duty to the Musqueam in its handling of the deal with the Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club. This ruling not only affirmed Musqueam’s rights, but also set a precedent in the recognition of Aboriginal rights in Canada. R. v. Guerin acknowledged that Canada (the federal government) has a trust-like relationship, or fiduciary duty towards First Nations, specifically in regards to reserve lands. In other words, the federal government has the obligation to act in their best interest.

Canadian Aboriginal law is the body of Canadian law that concerns a variety of issues related to Indigenous peoples in Canada. Thus, Canadian Aboriginal Law is different from Indigenous Law. In Canada, Indigenous Law refers to the legal traditions, customs, and practices of Indigenous peoples and groups. Canadian Aboriginal law provides certain Constitutionally recognized rights to land and traditional practices. Sparrow, in Unjust Relations: Aboriginal Rights in Canadian Courts.

This is a fascinating collection of eight Canadian Supreme Court decisions concerning aboriginal rights. The judgements in each case are presented in their original form and include dissenting opinions. The cases, which span from 1888 to 1990, demonstrate the development of the legal value of aboriginal rights in Canada and shed new light on how recent court decisions were influenced by those in the past.
