Description

First Nations Cultural Heritage and Law is the first of two interdisciplinary volumes exploring First Nations perspectives on cultural heritage and issues of reform within and beyond Western law. Written in plain language and in collaboration with First Nation partners, it contains seven case studies featuring indigenous concepts, legal orders, and encounters with legislation and negotiations; a national review essay; three chapters reflecting on major themes; and a self-reflective critique on the challenges of collaborative and intercultural research. It will be of interest to indigenous communities and their leaders, museum personnel and other cultural heritage professionals, academics and students, government policy workers, treaty negotiators, lawyers, and others interested in First Nations cultural heritage. Although the volume draws on specific First Nation experiences, it covers a wide range of topics of concern to Inuit, Metis, and other indigenous peoples. Beyond this audience, it will be of interest to cultural heritage professionals; academics and students; government workers; treaty negotiators; lawyers; and others who work with or are interested in First Nations cultural heritage.
