At The Edge Of Canada: Indigenous Research

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.
