Abstract: This major research paper presents an overview of the relationship between how the state and First Nation communities access land rights, given the gender discrimination and economic inefficiencies of the state formed system on First Nation reserves. The main issue is related to the claim that Indigenous women are discriminated against in Canadian law. A critical secondary document analysis has been used to explore the growing topic of individual property rights on reserve lands. While many authors have written that the solution to economic problems on reserve is to adopt westernized property rights, the literature suggests that this approach does not consider the cultural implications, nor does it take into consideration the process of reconciliation. Regardless of the approach taken, it is important for the planning community to be aware of the complexity of the economic, social, environmental and ideological roots underpinning current land management systems on and off reserve lands.
