Title: Postcolonial Indigenous Legal Consciousness
Authors: Youngblood Henderson, James (Sákéj)
Issue Date: 1-Oct-2002
Publisher: Indigenous Law Journal
Abstract: Indigenous lawyers face some difficult challenges in confronting the existing injustice created by colonization and racism for the Aboriginal peoples of Canada. In the Canadian justice system that is failing Aboriginal peoples, they have to challenge the existing colonial ideology of contrived superiority of European law and humanity and the psychology of cultural and racial inferiority of Aboriginal peoples. They must revitalize the justice system, decolonize the judicial precedents and renew respect for ecological and human diversity. These multifaceted tasks require not only the establishment of an innovative postcolonial Indigenous legal consciousness based on Aboriginal teaching and law, but also require them to dream and articulate impossible visions to create a postcolonial Canada.
