Overview

One of the major cultural and economic issues facing both Australia and Canada concerns the governments' past and present failures to involve the ``first peoples'' in development. Elspeth Young contrasts the materialist development approach of both big companies and governments with the stress of the Indian, Inuit and Aboriginal peoples place on husbanding natural resources. Exploring why attempts to promote minority development have failed, whether models of sustainable development are applicable to remote area development, as well as the yawning gap between what people want and what governments are prepared to offer. The argues that this gap can only be bridged by alternative approaches to development, centered on participation and the acknowledgement of these peoples' holistic sense of community.
