Sample text

As we have seen, this vision of a relationship between equals competed with, and was eventually overshadowed by, a colonial vision in which Aboriginal peoples and their cultures were treated as unequal and ranked as inferior. North America was retrospectively seen as either uninhabited at the time of European arrival or as inhabited by primitive peoples who, because they did not have European state formations and institutions of property, lacked government and jurisdiction. These ethnocentric assumptions have no place in a postcolonial civilisation or in the new relationship.

Of the three types of struggle Aboriginal peoples are engaged in - struggles for decolonisation, self-rule, and a just relationship - I wish to take up only the third, and only in Canada. I will describe two major types of relationship between Aboriginal peoples and (non-Aboriginal) Canadians3 over the last four centuries and argue that one of these should be the prototype for a new and just relationship between them. The reader will then be in a position to compare and contrast this account with the chapters by Esteva and Stavenhagen on the analogous struggles in Mexico.

Why they gained access to the political consciousness and governing institutions of the majority population is not readily explained by ordinary calculations of the resources for political influence. Even in Mexico, where the violent confrontation of the Zapatistas compelled attention, the government has been forced, however ambivalently and partially, to confront indigenous demands. And Canada's persistent search for accommodative solutions sets a standard for the world. Yet solutions are elusive.
