FNIS 401Z – Indigenous Rights and the Settler State

The social, intellectual, and legal construction of Aboriginal rights in Canada, and the forces—Indigenous movements and settler state forces—which have given them shape. This course offers a critical engagement with Indigenous-state relations, told through the story of section 35—the Aboriginal rights clause of Canada’s constitution. We will particularly focus on decolonial alternatives to ‘rights’ put forward by Indigenous resistance and resurgence movements.
