Gordon Christie believes that the real challenge of implementing the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) is for Canada to recognize and accept the strong legal pluralism of Indigenous and Canadian law. The intent of UNDRIP implementation is for Canada to work in a collaborative fashion with Indigenous nations. Christie provides some recommendations for the Canadian government, which, if followed, would allow for Indigenous law and Canadian law to be interwoven in light of principles and provisions contained in UNDRIP.
