This comprehensive study provides a general theory and explanation of the ownership, power, and responsibility with respect to Indian reserves and other lands set apart for Aboriginal peoples. It clarifies the factors that determine the rights of Aboriginal peoples to lands set apart or reserved for them, and facilitates an appropriate legal understanding of those rights. Its 12 chapters are divided into 4 parts: Part 1 is a history of Indian reserves and Aboriginal lands; Part 2 examines the ownership of Indian reserves and Aboriginal lands; Part 3 looks at government, control, and management of Aboriginal lands and resources; and Part 4 addresses the accountability of the Crown and its fiduciary obligation.
