This chapter presents an overview of how aboriginal self-determination became the overarching dynamic for legal development in each jurisdiction. It sets out the important legal contours of the last quarter-century, showing how each jurisdiction addressed the legal and constitutional pluralism that this new imperative demanded, and purged the older discredited goal of assimilation.
