For over 20 years, this national casebook has included comprehensive coverage of foundational legal issues and jurisprudence affecting Indigenous peoples in Canada, contextualising them within their larger cultural, political and sociological framework. The 6th edition of Indigenous Legal Issues: Cases, Materials & Commentary follows in the tradition of its predecessors and has been updated with a new name and the most current Supreme Court of Canada jurisprudence at the time of publication.
As with previous editions, the 6th edition includes chapters containing case law and original commentary on a wide variety of issues of importance to both Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada. The book is adaptable for use in introductory, advanced, or specialized courses and provides useful analysis and insight from the authors, both of whom have had their publications cited in multiple judgments by the Supreme Court of Canada. This book also contains insights into questions courts have left unanswered, providing readers with ideas about how the law will develop in the future.
