Indigenous law, women & human rights

How are Indigenous women’s rights also Indigenous human rights? Join leading scholars from across Canada in a thoughtful exploration facilitated by Chancellor Shelagh Rogers.

Speakers: Val Napoleon and Sarah Morales, Associate professors, Faculty of Law- Indigenous Law Program (UVic), Lana Lowe PhD student, Faculty of Law-Indigenous Law Program (UVic); and Tracey Lindberg (Author and Professor, Faculty of Law (UOttawa).
