The Indigenous Land Claims in New Zealand and Canada: From Grievance to Enterprise
Description:

This Public Policy Paper investigates the linkage between recognition of Indigenous peoples’ rights and the economic prosperity of those peoples in both Canada and New Zealand. "The Indigenous Land Claims in New Zealand and Canada: From Grievance to Enterprise", authored by Robert B. Anderson and Corinne Barnett, assesses the situation through a review of both historic events and current circumstances and case evaluation. The paper reflects on the struggle by Indigenous peoples in Canada and New Zealand for the recognition of their rights to their traditional lands and resources and the role that these resources are expected to play, and indeed have played, in providing Aboriginal people and the Maori with the capacity to pursue development on their terms.

The authors conclude with a sense of optimism for the future. As they note, “the agreements seem to be fostering economic development among Aboriginal peoples in Canada and the Maori in New Zealand, often in mutually beneficial alliances with the rest of the population.” Anderson and Barnett hope the Aboriginal peoples and Maori continue to pursue development on their own terms as doing so holds out real prospects for success.
