Indigenous Identity & Canadian Law (Lac La Biche Campus)

June 12 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Indigenous Identity & Canadian Law

Perceptions of Indigenous identity can be complex as definitions may have legal implications that often operate in perplexing ways. In this workshop, participants will develop an understanding of the historical, legal and contextual terminology pertaining to Indigenous Peoples through examination of the various ways in which Indigenous peoples in Canada self-identify and are defined by the state—and the ways in which these two systems of definition, one based in law and legislation, the other in family tradition and community practice, are frequently in conflict. Workshop Length: 3 hours.

This workshop comes with a Certificate of Completion and participants will have the option to participate in a smudging ceremony prior to the workshop. The workshop will end with a sharing circle; a safe and inclusive space for discussing sensitive issues.
