Law, Land & Treaties: The Three Pillars of Indigenous Rights
Discussion presented by Rick Hill
This presentation will examine the history and meaning of these critical matters from a Six Nations point of view, based upon oral tradition and the reading of the wampum belts. “Law” includes Indigenous law, and the laws of Nature; “Land” includes the holding in trust of land and its resources for the future generations; and “Treaties” will examine the founding principles and best practices derived from a treaty relationship. The goal will be to uncover time tested and true methods used by our ancestors to resolve matters.
