The Circumpolar Women's Conference: A View from the South.
Northern Review, n22 p22-28 Win 2000
The Circumpolar Women's Conference set an example for the world by emphasizing regional and international cooperation. The focus on reconciliation, healing, and respect for cultural diversity was a refreshing counterpoint to conservative policies affecting Aboriginal Australians. Justice systems and Native language programs in the Yukon and Australia's Northern Territory are compared, as are attitudes toward past abuses of indigenous children in residential schools and foster care.
