Summary "What happens to a First Nation after the successful negotiation of a land claim? Navigating Neoliberalism argues that neoliberalism, which drives government policy concerning First Nations in Canada, can also drive self-determination. And in a globalizing world, new opportunities for indigenous governance may transform socioeconomic well-being." "Gabrielle Slowey studies the development of First Nations governance in health, education, economic development, and housing. What emerges is a theoretical and empirical case study of one First Nation, the Mikisew Cree, as it navigates its way through neoliberalism. Contrary to the popular belief that First Nations suffer in an age of state retrenchment, privatization, and decentralization, Slowey finds that the current political and economic climate can be an opportunity for greater autonomy and well-being."--Jacket
