dc.description.abstract The ability of Indigenous peoples of Canada to manage their environment according to their own laws and values has been usurped by the imposition of colonial frameworks. Indigenous people in Canada, like many other Indigenous groups, are seeking to reassert their ability to carry out their ancestral relationships with their territories, and are recovering and improving their systems of governance in order to do so. This research explores the relationships between frameworks for Indigenous governance developed by the National Centre for First Nations Governance and Indigenous and non-Indigenous theories of sustainability in both theory and practice. The author concludes that Indigenous governance and sustainability are interlinked: Indigenous visions of a sustainable future underpin the development of governance, and effective governance is required in order to give effect to community aspirations of sustainability. en_US
