Abstract

Interesting parallels and comparisons can be drawn between the struggle for land rights by Australian Aborigines and by Indians and Inuit in Canada. Recent Australian federal legislation has recognized some aboriginal rights to lands they have occupied for over 40,000 years. The author discusses the events leading up to that legislation, analyzes its major provisions and assesses its applications to date.
