This is an excellent overview of the international law of colonialism and how it was applied by England and the colonies of the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand against Indigenous Peoples and how the Doctrine of Discovery is still being used today.

| 5 out of 5 Stars!


Robert J. Miller, Jacinta Ruru, Larissa Behrendt, and Tracey Lindberg make a compelling case that efforts to equitably respond to the demands of an estimated two hundred and fifty million individuals belonging to five thousand distinct indigenous communities in 70 nation-states around the world must break free of latter-day renditions of paternalistic and exploitative theories that received their legal sanction in the discovery doctrine.

The authors show how, in distant lands separated by oceans and continents, discovery doctrine was established during a time in which there was an earnest debate over the humanity of Indians and other conquered indigenous peoples around the world---i.e., whether they could be exploited and "Christianized," which was seen as a more humane and altruistic act and one, to be sure, not always practiced by conquering empires.

In the United States the legal status and rights of Indian Nations were determined by foreign and exploitative norms derived from these Euro-centric notions. U.S. Indian law originated with a doctrine that refused legal status or rights to indigenous tribal peoples because they were "heathens" and "infidels," and therefore legally presumed to lack the rational capacity necessary to assume an equal status or exercise equal rights under the Europeans' world view.

Discovering Indigenous Lands shows how solutions based on discovery doctrine mindsets are the fruit of a poisonous tree, and their very provenance mocks modern legal standards and practices, and will likely be ineffectual in enlisting popular support from those who inhabited the land before it was taken up by colonial societies and who believe themselves to be fundamentally different from those currently governing those lands.

As Miller, Ruru, Behrendt and Lindberg eloquently demonstrate, any remedy to rid the world of its last colonial legacies needs to avoid past errors, any solutions to problems affecting areas where indigenous peoples live must begin with those communities themselves.

Discovering Indigenous Lands is a must read, for failure to act now on the legitimate aspirations of indigenous peoples will surely fuel ethnic conflicts based on inequitable access to power and resources.
