Event description
Live and on Zoom, Delia Opekokew, Ontario's first indigenous female lawyer, details her insider view of Residential Schools and Land Claims

About this event

Want to know more about indigenous Residential Schools?

No one is better suited to answer your questions. Delia was a survivor/graduate of two residential schools, one of three adjudicators for the Indian Residential Schools Alternative Dispute Resolution process, and Deputy Chief Adjudicator of the IRS Settlement Agreement results.

Ms. Opekokew is a multiple award-winning constitutional lawyer and was involved with a successful Cree Nation Land Treaty settlement and a $40 million settlement for Indian Veterans.

Delia Opekokew also initiated the legal suit against the Ontario Provincial Police in the death of Dudley George, which led to the Ipperwash Inquiry, and she was the first woman to run for the position of Grand Chief of the Assembly of First Nations.

One of her favourite memories is working as a marketing assistant for Buffy Sainte Marie.

Our Unitarian Congregation in Mississauga is honoured to sponsor this presentation and Q and A session, for everyone to hear her unique perspective on Indigenous Rights in Canada.

Zoom link information will be emailed 5 days before the event.
