Indigenous Law and Conversation Across Generations

Date: Saturday October 28
Time: 2pm – 4pm
Venue: Chatelech High School Theatre, Sechelt
“With this talk, I would like to provoke a range of perceptions and questions about the role and function of law in Indigenous civic society in the past and today. Why are critical and productive conversations important, and how do we understand legitimacy? How are we all legal agents, and how might we draw on stories to reinvigorate law.”
