Title: "Indigeneity" as Self-Determination
Authors: Bennett, Mark
Issue Date: 1-Oct-2005
Publisher: Indigenous Law Journal
Abstract: There is presently much controversy concerning the legal and political significance of “Indigeneity” in settler states. Recently, Jeremy Waldron set out to critique what he saw as the uncritical use of liberal property morality by supporters of Indigeneity. This paper argues that self-determination is a liberal principle better suited to founding Indigeneity’s political significance. To this end, this paper examines self-determination as a liberal principle, and develops a historical approach to it to support the argument that it provides a firmer foundation for Indigeneity in liberal political discourse than liberal property principles.
