Event description

Description

Organized by the Centre for Constitutional Studies & the Faculties of Law and Native Studies, University of Alberta

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

Inspired by the insights of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples, UNDRIP and the treaty relationships that constitute Canada’s first constitutional law, the Reconciliation / Wahkohtowin conference will focus on how to translate the spirit of reconciliation into constitutional text, practice, culture, and law.

Our conference brings together leading scholars of Indigenous and constitutional law, as well as community leaders and policy makers to discuss and examine the possibilities and hurdles of a constitutional future built on mutual respect. We take inspiration from the Cree concept, Wahkohtowin and its focus on the connections, responsibilities, and meanings of deep and abiding relationships.

Conference Program is available here

  • Val Napoleon, Law Foundation Professor of Aboriginal Justice and Governance, University of Victoria, Faculty of Law

  • Jean Leclair, 2013 Trudeau Fellow, Université de Montréal, Faculté de droit
