|Archiving Force: Ethics and Consignation|
Indigenous Law Journal, Vol. 16/17, No. 1, 2018, pp. 67-84.
Discusses the role archival material plays in common law and the consolidation of state power, and questions whether this circumscribes the courtsí ability to address historical injustices. Uses the case of R v Van der Peet to illustrate two different approaches to the question of Aboriginal title.
Refers to cases:
R v Van der Peet
Delgamuukw v British Columbia
