Decolonizing Democracy: Centering Indigenous Resilience in Public Institutions 

15 oct. 2020

Ontario Bar Association in Partnership With DemocracyXChange
9:30 AM to 10:45 AM (ET)

Indigenous laws, systems of governance, and ways of knowing are foundational to what we now understand as Canada’s approach to democracy. As Elders, community members, scholars, and allies work to create critical space to support Indigenous governance and law-making, how do colonial democracy and its institutions reflect and reject Indigenous ways of knowing, particularly in the context of a pandemic that disproportionately impacts First Nation, Inuit and Métis Peoples? The leading scholars in this session will examine how Indigenous resilience, thought and action can define a new chapter for democratic institutions in Canada. 

This event is presented in partnership with DemocracyXChange - Canada's annual democracy summit.
