Feasting the Forgotten Rivers – March 22, 2019

 

Nibi Onje Biimaadiiziiwin: Water is Life – January 15, 2019

This event brought together three esteemed Indigenous scholars to lead a panel and share knowledge on their stories, experiences and research, and to foster dialogue on Indigenous water law and the concerns facing our waters and Indigenous communities today. We welcomed Sue Chiblow of Garden River First Nation, a PhD student at York University’s Environmental Studies program, examining humanity’s relationship with water;  Aimee Craft (Anishinaabe-Métis) who is assistant professor at the Faculty of Common law at the University of Ottawa, specializing in Anishinaabe and Canadian Aboriginal law; and Deborah McGregor, a cross-appointed professor at York University from Osgoode Hall and the Faculty of Environmental Studies, whose research focuses on Indigenous knowledge systems and their various applications toward water, environmental governance and environmental justice.
