Indigenous Law Program

Tebwetibajimowin - To Tell the Truth

September 27, 2018    │   9:30 am  to  4:00 pm

~ Registration for this program is now closed ~

Jointly presented by the Law Society of Manitoba, the Aboriginal Law section of the Manitoba Bar Association, the Manitoba Indigenous Law Students Association and the Faculty of Law at the University of Manitoba. 

Tebwetibajimowin which translated from Anishinaabemowin is “To Tell the Truth,” is a program on Indigenous law that will be led by elders and knowledge keepers.  The program will serve as a primer for practicing lawyers looking to learn about Indigenous laws and customs and gain insight into how Indigenous peoples navigate various legal systems.  The entire agenda will be set by Indigenous elders and will include ceremonies and presentations that embody some of the principles of Indigenous law. Indigenous law students from Robson Hall will provide support to the elders and share their views on the importance of Indigenous law.
The Indigenous population in Manitoba is young and growing rapidly.  Increasingly Indigenous peoples are influencing developments in law and policy in many spheres of life in Canada. It is critical that all Manitoba lawyers, regardless of their areas of practice, have an understanding of Indigenous law so that they can better understand issues that will arise, including the cultural and historic context for these issues.  

The program will take place at the Turtle Lodge in Sagkeeng First Nation. Turtle Lodge is internationally recognized as a place for sharing traditional Indigenous knowledge and ways of life, for reconnecting to the earth and nature, and for sharing that knowledge among people of all races and nations.

We hope you'll join us for a unique and timely opportunity to learn
from elders and knowledge keepers out on the land.
