Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States have a lot in common. They're all former British colonies. They all voted against the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. And they were all colonized under the Doctrine of Discovery. Weaving story with law, Discovering Indigenous Lands is a detailed text that shows how the Doctrine has been wielded in these four contexts. Though differences exist and practices have shifted over the years, it's clear that the "CANZUS states" still assert control over Indigenous lands and lives through the legal principle of Discovery.
