d) Temporal Symbolic Violence A final form of symbolic violence evident in the process of treaty-making occurs with regard to the temporal objectives of treaties: Are the negotiating parties seeking to repair the past or to improve the future? Few involved in the B.C. Treaty Process actually treat these as two separate questions. The essential difference in visions is one of emphasis. For First Nations, the path to a better future runs clearly through discussions about the past about the hardships suffered and their impact on First Nations societies. They argue that an acknowledgement of past injustices, through material redistribution and symbolic recognition, is a necessary step if First Nations are going to heal their communities and arrive at the better future stressed by the non- Aboriginal governments. But for the latter, all of this discussion about the past is nothing more than a quagmire in which the treaty process could sink if weighted with the baggage of historical injustices.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
