This thesis applies a governmentality/Foucauldian lens to the Comprehensive Land Claims (CLC) regime of governance in Canada. More specifically, I engage an interpretative-empirical analysis of the Nunavut Land Claim and to a lesser extent the Algonquin Agreement in Principle. The object of my research is to add to literature critical of land claims. I look to unpack and explore an underdeveloped area of the CLC regime - the impact of colonial liberal institutions in post-CLC indigenous community. I argue that a governmentality lens can call into question the normative expectations for Indigneous communities that flow from CLCs.
