Confronting Three Big Barriers to Reconciliation

  • The myth that Canada respects human rights
  • The myth that Aboriginal rights and treaty recognition is achieving reconciliation
  • The denial and erasure of Indigenous legal orders and jurisdiction


I hail from the Listuguj Mi’gmaq First Nation located on the Gaspé Coast of Quebec, known as the Gespegewagi district of Mi’kma’ki. I speak English, French and am becoming fluent in Mi'gmaq (I have been taking weekly lessons since May 2018). After nearly 10 years of a very rewarding practice in Aboriginal law, I decided to make the move to academia to continue my work for First Nations in a different way — through teaching, writing, and speaking about the issues facing Indigenous peoples in Canada and how the law can be a tool for reconciliation and improving the lives of Indigenous peoples.
