Description

Join our President and CEO John Young and author John Borrows for the second installment of the President’s Lecture Series.

John Borrows is Anishinaabe from the Chippewas of the Nawash First Nation on the shores of Georgian Bay in Ontario. He is the Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Law at the University of Victoria Law School. The Canada Council for the Arts named Borrows the 2017 Killam Prize winner in Social Sciences for his extensive research in Indigenous law.

In April 2016, John Borrows published Freedom and Indigenous Constitutionalism. His lecture will focus on the themes raised in the book, including freedom of religion, Indigenous perspectives and reconciliation. Freedom and Indigenous Constitutionalism is available for purchase at the Boutique.

The evening includes a conversation between Young and Borrows, and an audience question-and-answer period. The event will end with a book signing and a meet-and-greet with the author. Light refreshments and a cash bar are available.

What are my transportation/parking options?

Public parking is available at metered lots around the Museum.

The Museum's Accessible Drop-off Entrance has four parking stalls and brings visitors right to the doors of the Museum. A valid provincial permit must be displayed in the vehicle to park in these stalls. Additional accessible parking can be found along Israel Asper Way.

All Museum entrances are accessible to people using wheeled devices and people who prefer to avoid stairs. The Accessible Drop-off Entrance allows passengers to be dropped off in close proximity to entry doors.

Winnipeg Transit has 33 routes that service The Forks and the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. With stops on Main Street just outside Union Station, on William Stephenson Way, and on Israel Asper Way, getting to the Museum by bus couldn’t be easier.
