(p.75) III Some Objections
Sovereignty's Promise

Evan Fox-Decent

Oxford University Press

In this chapter I consider arguments which contend that the public fiduciary model has no wider application than the Crown-Native relationship. They are unpersuasive. The distinct nature of Aboriginal rights supports a conclusion that some fiduciary duties owed to Aboriginal peoples will have distinctive content. But non-Aboriginals too confront a state with irresistible sovereign powers that trigger an overarching fiduciary obligation.

Keywords:   Aboriginal, first nations, sui generis aboriginal rights, crown-native fiduciary relationship, aboriginal treaty rights, paternalism
