Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Over the course of a century, until the late 1700s, the British Crown, the Iroquois, and other Aboriginal groups of eastern North America developed an alliance and treaty system known as the Covenant Chain. Bruce Morito offers a philosophical rereading of the historical record of negotiations, showing that the parties developed an ethic of mutually recognized respect. This ethic, Morito argues, remains relevant to current debates about Aboriginal and treaty rights because it is neither culturally nor historically bound. Real change is possible, if efforts can be shifted from piecemeal legal and political disputes to the development of an intercultural ethic based on trust, respect, and solidarity.

Synopsis : Over the course of a century, until the late 1700s, the BritishCrown, the Iroquois, and other Aboriginal groups of eastern NorthAmerica developed a system of alliances and treaties that came to beknown collectively as the Covenant Chain. In "An Ethic of Mutual Respect, " Bruce Morito offers aphilosophical interrogation of the predominant current reading of thehistorical record regarding the Covenant Chain. Through this freshperspective, he overturns assumptions about early First Nations--Crownrelationships and demonstrates the relevance of the Covenant Chain tothe current relationship. By examining the forms of expressioncontained in colonial documents, the Record of Indian Affairs, andrelated materials, Morito locates the values and moral commitments thatunderpinned the parties' strategies for negotiation andreconciliation. What becomes apparent is that these interactionsdeveloped an ethic of mutually recognized respect that was coherent andneither culturally nor historically bound. This ethic, Morito argues, remains relevant to current debates over Aboriginal and treaty rightsas they pertain to the British Crown tradition. Real change is possibleif the focus can be shifted from piecemeal legal and political disputesto the development of an intercultural ethic based on trust, respect, and solidarity.Bruce Morito is a professor of philosophy in theFaculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at Athabasca University.
