Aboriginal and Indigenous Law

A note on Subject Terms:

Below are a list of subject terms you can link to in order to find books in the library collection on Aboriginal and Indigenous Law. You may notice that certain subject terms contain outdated or problematic language. These subject terms are part of the controlled vocabulary established by the Library of Congress (LC) to classify bibliographic materials and changing them is quite difficult, especially since they are linked across multiple organizations. Several groups and organizations have introduced initiatives to decolonize LC subject headings, but this is unfortunately a slow process and recent efforts to change similarly problematic subject headings have run into roadblocks. A list of resources to learn more about subject heading decolonization efforts can be found on the following pages:
