At The Edge Of Canada: Indigenous Research
March 13, 2017
In honour of International Women’s Day on Mar. 8, we visit with Prof. Aimee Craft, Adjunct Professor in the Faculty of Law and highly respected Anishinaabe Lawyer, in her office at Robson Hall to discuss her recent appointment as Director of Research for the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Inquiry (MMIW&G) . We discuss Aimee’s role in the upcoming water gathering at Whiteshell Provincial Park: Nibi Ojne Biimaadiziwin. We also dish a little bit about Anishinaabe water law and philosophy and how it informs her research work academically and professional for the MMIW&G inquiry. Once we got to chatting we couldn’t stop, so this is an edited version of a much longer conversation. A full version will be posted on-line soon.
