Description This article discusses Aboriginal peoples engagement in Negotiated Agreements (IBAs) and Environmental Impact Assessments as a way in which to produce more sustainable development projects. The author suggests that by negotiating with businesses directly, Aboriginal peoples are able to get around the limitations of government legislation and ensure their communities and lands are protected. A Case Study of Galore Creek, on the traditional territory of Tahltan Nation is proposed as an example of sustainable development.
