Summary

Challenges for aboriginal resource management in the Yukon Territory are discussed. After decades of state administration, indigenous peoples throughout the world are now succeeding, to varying degrees in the reimplementation of self-governing institutions and administrative processes. This reorientation is most observable in the context of the natural resource management, where a major policy trend is to devolve stage authority and administrative responsibility directly to local levels. It is found that while the language of devolution and local control now permeates local-state interaction, in many cases the new institutions that are created following devolution have little resemblance to indigenous forms of management.
