The Rediscovered Self by Ronald Niezen

Niezen_rediscovered

Drawing on historical, legal, and ethnographic material on aboriginal communities in northern Canada, Ronald Niezen illustrates the ways indigenous peoples worldwide are identifying and acting upon new opportunities to further their rights and identities. He shows how – within the constraints of state and international legal systems, activist lobbying strategies, and public ideas and expectations – indigenous leaders are working to overcome the injuries of imposed change, political exclusion, and loss of identity.
