The role of cultural context in reconciling indigenous and State law: examples from the Canadian experience / Michael Asch.

Title: The role of cultural context in reconciling indigenous and State law: examples from the Canadian experience / Michael Asch.
Author(s): Asch, Michael.
Date: 1999.
Publisher: Tromsø: Centre for Saami Studies, UiT
In: On customary law and the Saami rights process in Norway. (1999.),
Abstract: Article builds on assumption that law exists in every community, whether codified or not, and meaning must be found in that community. To lay down laws for association, national law and its practitioners must change judicial thinking based on ethnocentric principles and go over to thinking based on modern, culture-relative type principles, based on anthropological discipline. Cases of Gitksan and Wet'suwet'en hegemony, of Delgamuukw and Nisga'a testimony and of Deh Cho Dene marriage law are adduced.
