Aboriginal people in Canada have been negotiating modern land claims agreements with provincial and territorial governments for over thirty years. Historically, differences in values and culture have created challenges for drafting final agreements with First Nations. Even with agreements in place, misunderstandings between parties create distrust and difficulty establishing mutual expectations and coordinating actions. Wildlife management is a domain example of the complexity that must be addressed to implement policy in the service of all stakeholders. This description provides a context for discussing related coaching issues in the subsequent two articles.
