Chapter one sets out the social, economic and political positions of Indigenous peoples within the settler colonial states of Aotearoa New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the United States, and the various measures of marginalisation. It discusses the over-representation of Indigenous people as victims and offenders in the settler colonial states. The chapter discusses the absence of the concept of colonialism in mainstream criminology. It contextualises the position of Indigenous people within debates around sovereignty and self-determination, and introduces the importance of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
