The role of the sacred in Indigenous law and reconciliation

Event Date: March 8, 2018    |    Event Time: 7:00 - 9:00 pm

Event Location: Alix Goolden Hall
907 Pandora Avenue
Victoria, BC

It is often said that Indigenous peoples’ relationship to the land – and Indigenous peoples’ law – are sacred. What does “sacred” mean in this context? What should it convey to non-Indigenous Canadians when they engage with Indigenous peoples? How can you understand another person’s sense of the sacred?

Join two of UVic’s leading Indigenous scholars, John Borrows and Val Napoleon, for an engaging discussion of this compelling and multifaceted topic.

This free, public event is linked to a day-long symposium on "Rethinking the relationship between spirituality and reconciliation" to be held on Friday, March 9, at First People's House, University of Victoria. The March 8 evening event is free. There is a registration charge for the March 9 symposium to cover food and speakers' travel costs. 


Sorry, this event is full and registration is now closed, however it will be live streamed via Facebook here.

A video recording of the event will be made available on the UVic Law website next week. For more information, please contact Jenna Tremblay at lawad@uvic.ca.
