o Textbook in those days, no mentions about Aboriginals
o Aboriginal people are becoming much more a news item in Canadian newspapers
Plan to build a pipe line up
A Royal commission has been set up and said cannot do it
He set up a support booth for the people
There are indigenous people who come by choice and embedded in nation state
In late 70s, we tricked them to gain sovereignty
In Australia, Australian-Aboriginal claim: captain cook cruise in New Holland and got to an island
and declared all the land [King George the third]
o They believed in illegal magic
That is how the white people cut sovereignty
Political science should be about questions of justice
