While the available evidence proves that in the vast majority of cases non-Indian
litigants are treated as fairly as Indian litigants, non-Indians probably feel at a
disadvantage in tribal courts. Investors considering Indian Country are well

Climate change, the global demand for energy, and the depletion of easily accessible natural resources has led to an increase in mining activities in the Arctic, including in Nunavut, a region rich in resources but remote in comparison to the rest of Canada. Nunavut is a predominantly Inuit socio-political region created in 1999 via the Nunavut Act and the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement (NLCA) (1993). The NLCA also enshrined the Inuit right to manage the region's minerals and other natural resources. Yet, despite this power to 'steer their own ship,' Inuit communities struggle to maximize the benefits from resource development. Pond Inlet is a coastal hamlet on Baffin Island close to the newly operational Mary River Iron Ore Mine, an open pit mine with the potential to bring significant economic opportunities to the region. Using a framework developed by the Harvard Project on American Indian Economic Development, a case study of Pond Inlet highlights factors that contribute to and hinder Arctic Aboriginal communities' successful local development. A total of 47 semi-structured interviews were conducted with key informants in Pond Inlet and the territory's capital, Iqaluit. Findings underscore the importance of Indigenous community self-determination, effective and culturally relevant governing institutions, and clear visioning for the future. In Pond Inlet, key barriers to maximizing local benefits relate to institutional and governance challenges. Evidence from this study suggests that Pond Inlet will better succeed with local community development by strengthening its governance mechanisms to support the goals of self-determination.

We test the hypothesis that property institutions are responsible for the persistent low levels of business and economic development on American Indian reservations. American Indian lands are held in trust by the US Federal government and may not be used as collateral. We exploit the uniform and equal distribution of land between the Agua Caliente tribe and non-Indians in Palm Springs, CA in our analysis. Due to the General Allotment Act of 1887, the land was divided in a checkerboard pattern with even-numbered parcels provided to Agua Caliente government or individual tribal members and odd-numbered parcels (held in fee-simple status) were sold to non-Indians. Because of this, we overcome the usual land quality selection problem between the two types of property institutions. We find that holding local amenities and other characteristics of the parcel constant, there is no difference in the level of business investment on trust and fee simple properties. These results indicate that the inability to use American Indian land as collateral does not drive the low levels of observed business investment; other mechanisms and institutions may be the culprit. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

Undeniably, indigenous peoples within Canadian borders have advantages that indigenous peoples in many other parts of the world do not. Canada recognises First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples in its constitution. The Supreme Court of Canada has progressively strengthened Aboriginal authority over land, waters, and natural resources. Since the early 1990s, the provincial and federal governments of Canada have been involved in modern treaty-making to further enshrine the rights of Aboriginal communities with whom the Crown lacked historical agreements. And while progress has been variable, Canada is engaged in a process of reconciliation for some of the worse aspects of its colonial history. In 2008, for example, Canada offered an apology on behalf of Canadians for the Indian residential schools system and signed the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement, providing redress to victims and establishing the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada. As the former UN Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples summarises in his 2013 country report, 'Canada's relationship with the indigenous peoples within its borders is governed by a well-developed legal framework that in many respects is protective of indigenous peoples' rights' (Anaya 2013, p. 5).

Since its formation in 2013, the South Dakota Native Homeownership
Coalition (SDNHOC or 'the Coalition') has brought together a diverse
group of more than 75 tribal, state, federal, nonprofit, and private
sector stakeholders to identify barriers, share innovative solutions,
and leverage resources to create a clear path to homeownership
for Native people in South Dakota.1 In 2019, as part of this mission,
SDNHOC commissioned two capacity-building needs assessments—
one to identify the specific capacity-building needs of housing
practitioners and other Coalition members, the other to evaluate the
barriers and opportunities for lenders providing mortgage financing
on Indian trust land. This document is the second of those reports,
the needs assessment for lenders.

This study had two principal goals. The first was to
take a broad look at policing in Indian Country in
order to better understand the many arrangements
for administering reservation police departments,
develop an initial assessment of the challenges facing
Indian policing, and identify policing strategies
and approaches that might be successful in responding
to the growing crime problem in Indian Country.
The second was to evaluate the prospects for community
policing in Indian Country. Could this strategy,
which grew out of the experience of police departments
in urban settings, be usefully applied to the
strikingly different cultural, geographic, and demographic
features typical of Indian reservations? This
study is a first effort to characterize the variety of
arrangements for reservation policing combined with
a more comprehensive effort to better understand the
operations of a limited set of representative departments
and their tribal contexts.
