Winner of the Scholarly Writing Award (2000 Saskatchewan Book Awards).

Recognized as a unique and important contribution to scholarship in the area, Aboriginal Tenure is the product of meticulous research and thorough analysis. Aboriginal Tenure explores the origins of common law concepts of land ownership, the attempts to reconcile European and Aboriginal traditions in the treaty process, and the consequences of the application of British colonial law and Crown prerogative. The work analyses judicial reconciliation of Aboriginal tenure through application of the Constitution, expands on the sui generis principle, and offers a vision for the post-colonial legal regime.
