Aboriginal rights refer to traditions and customs. It includes the right to self-government, to self-determination, to hunt, to fish, to practice one’s own culture and customs including language and religion, and the right to land.
The Royal Proclamation of 1763 was a document initially issued by King George III in 1763 to officially claim lands in North America after the Britain won the Seven Years War.
However, the Royal Proclamation clearly states that the Aboriginal title still valid and continues to exist. The Aboriginal title means the Aboriginal right to land or a territory. The proclamation states that all lands would be considered Aboriginal land until bounded by treaty.
The Royal Proclamation was also covered in Section 25 of the Constitution Act. This section of the Constitution Act ensure that nothing can repeal or decrease the Aboriginal rights listed in the proclamation.
