This book employs critical theory to investigate the different worldviews involved in an engagement with indigenous normativities, and to suggest practical solutions for overcoming the systemic inequalities between Indigenous and non-indigenous cultures. Drawing upon recent conceptualisations of ‘spatial justice’, the book draws attention to those injustices masked by the operation of the dominant legal culture. It then considers these as materially contextualized, and constructs a foundation upon which to base new problem-solving tools.

Articulated in relation to four case studies, the theoretical framework developed here is nevertheless guided by a concern for its real-world, problem-solving, application. As such, it will be of considerable interest, not just to those carrying out scholarly work in the areas of spatial and indigenous justice, but also to practitioners, activists, and policy-makers working on indigenous issues.
