In the past year, the Tulo Centre has been working with the Ngāi Tahu Research Centre at the University of Canterbury. Recently a delegation came from New Zealand to meet with the Tulo Centre to discuss the formalization of a working relationship between the two research centres. The Tulo Centre is pleased to bring you this conversation where Manny Jules, Te Maire Tau, Darren Russell and Rinito Davis discuss the creation of the Alliance for Renewing Indigenous Economies and the concept of Indigenous jurisdiction.
“This paper explores the struggle by Indigenous people in Canada and New Zealand for the recognition of their rights to their traditional lands and resources and the role that these resources are expected to play, and indeed have played, in providing Aboriginal people and Maori the capacity to pursue development on their terms both economically and as ‘nations’ with Canada and New Zealand.”
“This paper compares the welfare conditions, policy challenges and opportunities for Aboriginal peoples in the United States, Australia and New Zealand. Our objective is to point to some of the common challenges facing Aboriginal social policies in different countries. What can we learn from experiences elsewhere to build Canada’s social knowledge as it relates to Aboriginal peoples?”
