Economic Management and Indigenous Self-Determination
This course examines past and present ways that Indigenous people have gained their livelihoods from their ancestral lands. Specific themes include taxation, the financing of Indigenous governments and the development of economic activities and management structures that are consistent with Indigenous beliefs and social practices. The quest for Indigenous self-sufficiency and the need for an ecologically-sound regime of sustainable economic development are inter-related subjects that inform the ideological approach of this course.
