What does it mean to be Indigenous today? How and why were the treaties formed and are they still valid today? What legislations direct Indigenous rights? Can you challenge inherent rights, and, if so, how? This workshop will highlight major historical events since European contact that have had major impacts on Canada's Indigenous Peoples.
This workshop is offered by BearPaw Legal Education, a department of Native Counselling Services of Alberta. BearPaw Legal Education provides free workshops across Alberta on various legal subjects. Each workshop engages with Indigenous and Canadian legal perspectives to outline individual rights and responsibilities.
Bannock and tea will be provided.
