Settler-Indigenous Relations

The presentation concerns the relations between the Indigenous peoples of our area and the settler population, from the 19th century to the present. Participants will learn about the origins of contemporary issues, and gain a deeper understanding of where we are headed. The presentation includes, in part, my own research regarding Indigenous peoples and legal entanglements in human rights tribunals and courts. The format is a power point presentation, but with time for questions, chat box entries, and discussion.
