Indigenous Rights and Environmental Justice

(p.133) 7 Indigenous Rights and Environmental Justice
Politics in the Vernacular

Will Kymlicka (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores the rights of indigenous peoples within the context of social justice and environmental protection. It argues that although indigenous peoples have inherent rights to self-determination, this does not absolve them from redistributive obligations. It presents two ways in which principles of justice can be adapted to accommodate that situation of indigenous peoples: extra resources may be required to rectify the disadvantages they face as minority cultures; indigenous peoples should be free to decide how to manage their traditional lands in accordance with the principles of justice.

Keywords:   indigenous peoples, social justice, environmental justice, indigenous rights, environmental protection, redistributive obligation
