Against the background of the historical suffering, social and economic marginalisation, and epistemological exclusion, this publication deals with the rights of those indigenous peoples that face systematic policies of expropriation of their lands, territories and natural resources, particularly in Canada. Professor Reguart starts with the analysis of religious freedom, focusing on the special relationship that indigenous peoples have with their lands and territories. The spiritual dimension of that special relationship is the key pillar of the publication. This spiritual dimension is claimed not only by indigenous peoples themselves, but also by the progressive jurisprudence of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights in a number of emblematic cases on the rights of indigenous peoples.
