Do Aboriginal Laws Make a Difference: William v. British Columbia et al.

pdf: Do Aboriginal Laws Make a Difference: William v. British Columbia et al.
Resource Description: 

In 2008, I wrote a paper primarily based on the Plaintiff’s Final Argument, which postulated that oral history is “... a source of information that provides a more complete understanding of the issues and legal tests involved in Aboriginal rights litigation. Oral history not only illuminates historic events, but it provides context and an Aboriginal perspective to those events. Without oral history, the laws, cultures, traditions, religions, identities, land occupation, land use patterns, and histories of Aboriginal groups can too easily be misinterpreted, to the extent that these groups may mistakenly be held not to meet the legal tests required to prove Aboriginal rights claims.”
