Description

Aboriginal Rights Are Not Human Rights: In Defence of Indigenous Struggles provides much needed conceptual and historical analysis of Aboriginal and treaty rights in Canada, and offers concrete suggestions to transform the current policy paradigm into one that supports and invigorates Indigenous cultures in a contemporary context. Aboriginal rights do not belong to the broader category of universal human rights because they are grounded in the particular practices of Aboriginal people. So argues Peter Kulchyski in this provocative book from the front-lines of Indigenous peoples' struggles to defend their culture from the ongoing conquest of their traditional lands. Kulchyski shows that some differences are more different than others, and he draws a border between bush culture and mall culture, between Indigenous peoples' mode of production and the totalizing push of state-led capitalism.
