Description In this article, the author suggests that understandings of self-determination among Indigenous communities in Canada would benefit from an understanding of the self as being autonomous. The author argues that the models of collective self-determination among Aboriginal communities, are too abstract for political arguments and encourages an individual model of self-determination for Indigenous peoples that would be easier to implement.
