Law & Activism: Strategies for the Protection of Indigenous Cultural Property

Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut
Saturday, February 18, 2017 1:30-3:00 PM


Inter Gentes will be hosting a panel at the 2017 Rebellious Lawyering Conference at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. This panel will feature a dialogue among activists and academics on the respect, protection, preservation and repatriation of indigenous cultural property, including sacred or grave sites, artifacts, and other cultural items or lands. This discussion will explore the various legal strategies employed by indigenous communities and their allies in Canada and the United States to assert rights over such property, from national- and regional-level tools to international obligations featured in multilateral treaties and UN declarations.

Panellists include Jean François Arteau (Kesserwan Arteau), Catherine Bell (University of Alberta), Honor Keeler (Association on American Indian Affairs), and Danika Littlechild (International Indian Treaty Council). The discussion will be moderated by Pamela Palmater (Ryerson University).
