This issue of the Pacific Rim Law & Policy Journal is dedicated to indigenous rights in an effort to encourage and proliferate legal scholarship in this important area. The recognition of indigenous rights is especially important to the Pacific Rim considering that the region has a longstanding history of discrimination against indigenous peoples. Though home to remarkable diversity, similar stories of colonization, war, natural disasters, and inter alia, economic, political, cultural, and environmental divisions, have shaped the region. This history provides a distinct vantage point from which to view the continued development of law and policy regarding indigenous rights.
