The Oklahoma Constitution also talks of the fundamental rights that every person should have: "All persons have the inherent right to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and the enjoyment of the gains of their own industry." That ties into the U.S. Constitution, as the Oklahoma Constitution focused more so on the state, and the U.S. Constitution focused on the people of the United
In Jacob Bronowski 's The Ascent of Man, Bronowski argues that mankind is unique from other animals because mankind think on an individual bases, create a home on every continent and shape of the landscape. But, mankind is not just a shaper of the landscape but also a figure in it. McBride’s The Color of Water and Mistry’s A Fine Balance both support the interpretation of mankind stated above. The idea of mankind being a shaper of the landscape is present in both books. To mankind the landscape is their life and they want to shape something out of their life.
His research includes important insights about how directives are interpreted by Forest Service administration. In supporting his argument in regards to the effective organizational structure of the USFS, Kaufman emphasizes several key components that contribute to its success. He points to the Park District Rangers who were given a great deal of autonomy in the agency 's decision-making process. This is the first of several important aspects of the organizational structure that the book talks about. The USFS decentralized much the responsibilities and authority to the District Rangers.
The government of Canada understands treaties as “constitutionally recognized agreements” (Government of Canada) between the Crown and Aboriginal peoples. Furthermore, most agreements were described as exchanges that the Indigenous people made in return for set out promises, obligations and benefits. Treaties were signed to determine the rights of Indigenous people and governments to use lands that the First nations people occupied. In 1870, one of the negotiated treaties was the right to educate. This study “focussed on the expectations of education as a treaty right by the original signatories and the current divergent understandings” (Carr-Stewart).

We see examples of popular sovereignty all over the world today, from Scotland wanting to become independent from the United Kingdom through peaceful government processes to Ukrainian revolutions within the country. The world today is quickly shaping to be more focused on popular sovereignty because more people want a governing system that mimics one of the United States’ doctrine and ideals. People want a government in which all people are considered equal and have individual worth. They want a government that isn’t tyrannical and a government in which the populace has a say in government affairs. Essentially they want equality and freedom, although that entails having popular sovereignty because these people want to have a voice.
It is a symbolic cultural tradition which has deeper roots that form a part of their cultural identity. The Potlatch is done to symbolized relationships, the shifting of power structures, and form bonds with others in their community. As culture is all about relationships with others and the world around you, the Potlach demonstrates how cultural practices can signify the deeper embedded meaning of culture. In conclusion, the Potlach is a very symbolic tradition for indigenous peoples and has a complex and deeper significance that goes beyond the biased perspective of the Euro-Canadian settlers at the time. The continuation of the Potlach should be practiced (and thankfully is) because it is a part of the Indigenous identity which should not be banned due to individuals who do not understand another cultures traditions or see them as
Self-determinations means giving people the opportunity to take charge of their own lives, it 's a concept that strive to ensure that indigenous Australians have the same right to take charge of their lives like the mainstream Austrians, self-determination focuses on encouraging and allowing the indigenous people to take their destiny into their hands, participating fully in matters that affects them.

Saying that indigenous people need to be self-determining means that community service workers would consult the people, collaborate with them and work with them in building services and programs meant for
Autonomy is the umbrella demand that embraces other indigenous concerns such as issues of development, cultural rights, and land rights. Mattiace (2002) argues that indigenous people embraced autonomy as a way to govern themselves (Shannan Mattiace 2002), the underline idea is the resistance against the State which takes land from them impose repressive mechanisms to dominate them. Land plays one of the most relevant roles since it regulates the type of life community members could practice. The premise today is that the indigenous communities hold the facto landownership, and they claim the rights of autonomy and self-determination. But, the Zapatista movement, in its uprising period included land redistribution.
Any definition of the American identity involves two very opposing ideals: it must allow for cultural diversity and yet also define a need for assimilation to common expectations. It must reflect the diverse roots of its culture as well as allow for common experiences shared across lines of race, ethnicity, or religion. The early settlers found a wilderness that needed to be cleared and tamed for the establishment of a respected community. Later, it was recognized as a land of natural resources and opportunity that attracted its citizens and immigrants alike with the promise of employment and prosperity. Still later, the American identity recognized the need for its government to protect the land and its individuals, serving as a tool for

These include health, social, economic, physical, cultural, current use of lands for resources mainly for traditional purposes according to a part of the legislature, which is known as the First Nations Land Management. This legislature recognizes the right for First Nations to develop interests, grant licenses, manage the natural resources and also receive revenue. It is no news that this process is not particularly suited for the big oil companies that are involved in fracking practices (Constance 2014). Another reserve legislation is the First Nations Oil and Gas and Moneys Management Act. It gives the first nations right to directly manage oil and gas resources and revenues on their land.
Hello, I’m David Suzuki, leader of the Environmental Party of Canada. I’m always thinking green and thinking of ways to make Canada a better place. The values of the EPC include, increasing the number of scholarships and bursaries for students who struggle to pay for secondary education.

Being an archeologist in Aurora also means that I must be familiar with laws and regulations of findings. The law protects Native American skeletons and other purposes, such as artifacts. Legal authorities in federal and state government divisions protect the remains of Native American and artifacts. According to attorney Benderson, Archeological Resources Protection Act (ARPA) the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGRPA), are part of an organization that is in control, thus, the state is reliable for state-owned and controlled lands, also to those that are locally owned (USAO Department of Justice 3). Once the remains or artifacts of Native American are found they immediately become protected, thus must be secure
