Brewster points out that a demand for a right is made to an authority which is deemed to have the ability (though not necessarily the intention) to grant the right. This automatically puts those claiming a right in a position of subservience to that authority. Such a situation is particularly poignant for those, like Indigenous peoples, for whom rights' are secondary to responsibilities and relationships, but who nevertheless find themselves using the rights language as the only way to communicate with an imperial or colonial legal system.
