Description In this report from the National Centre for First Nations Governance, Morellato discusses the importance of the Government’s duty to consult Aboriginal people with respect to their traditional lands, resources, and governance. She argues that the decisions made by the Crown can either facilitate Indigenous governance and self-determination or can extend injustice, marginalization and poverty. Important cases in Canadian law are examined followed by recommendations for consultation and reconciliation.
