The ""International Yearbook for Legal Anthropology"" volume brings together a collection of studies that discuss legal problems raised by cultural differences between people and the law to which they are subject. Volume 11 includes eight studies that discuss various forms in which the rights of indigenous people are violated. Topics include: the emergence of indigenous law in Chile as an example of legal pluralism; the impact of Peruvian national legislation on indigenous peoples; and the fishing dispute in Atlantic Canada following the decision of the Supreme Court of Canada acknowledging that the aboriginal right to fish was never extinguished.
