This text interrogates normative conceptions of indigenous self-determination and the structures of indigenous self-government institutions, arguing that indigenous self-determination is not achievable without restructuring all relations of domination beyond that with the state; nor can it be secured in the absence of gender justice. It demonstrates that the current rights discourse and focus on indigenous-state relations is limited in scope and fails to convey the full meaning of self-determination for indigenous peoples.
