Competing conceptions of and authority over land are at the root of most current conflicts between Indigenous peoples and the wider state. This project seeks to interrogate the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous understandings of land, placing both sets of literature in conversation. It asks, are these views inherently incompatible, is there overlap, and what are the implications for legal and political practices around land and land claims? While there are many points of divergence, this project finds that these views also overlap in important ways.
