The problems are far from being solved, and despite the political and legal energy applied, an agreed strategy has not emerged. Yet the doors remain open, and the resources of a civil society may yet arm Canadians to press forward with recognition and accommodation of their Aboriginal citizens. 39 One, propounded by the Party of the Democratic Revolution (the PRD) - the centre-left opposition in Mexico - originally proposed to establish autonomous regions. Because of the presence of nonindigenous people in indigenous regions these autonomous regions would be "pluri-ethnic" and would occupy an administrative hierarchy between municipal governments and state governments.

Over the last sixty years Canadians have learned to recognise themselves, not as colonials subordinate to the British people, but as members of a self-governing confederation, different but equal to the peoples of the world. This new form of postcolonial recognition has been publicly affirmed by a Canadian flag and the patriation of the Constitution. European Canadians have recently learned to recognise non-European Canadians, not as inferiors unfit for the rights of citizenship, but as citizens equal to themselves with cultures worthy of preservation and to affirm this recognition in the Constitution.

Moreover, Canadian governments practise "equalization," partial accumulation of financial resources in Ottawa and redistribution from there, in order to achieve balance among "have" and "have not" provinces. Thus Aboriginal peoples want both revenues from their lands, including subsurface rights (if they choose to exploit natural resources), and a financial allocation (equalization) from the national government. The former raises issues with provincial governments, which under §Q2A of the Constitution have primary authority regarding certain natural resources and land.
