Aboriginal Identity: The Need for Historical and Contextual Perspectives.
Restoule, Jean-Paul
Canadian Journal of Native Education, v24 n2 p102-12 2000
The issue of Aboriginal identity is most often played out in Canadian law. Aboriginal "difference" from others is used to maintain inequities in power relations when it is convenient for those with power. Canada Natives should identify themselves from inside themselves, their communities, and their traditions, and not allow others to decide their identity for them. (Contains 20 references.) (TD)
