Conference – Reconciliation: Wahkotowin

Taking place within Treaty Six on lands of the Enoch Cree Nation at the River Cree Resort just outside of Edmonton, Alberta, the Centre for Constitutional Studies and University of Alberta, Faculty of Law will host the conference, Reconciliation:Wahkotowin, on September 21-23, 2017.
Proposals for papers are now invited. We seek contributions from scholars interested in a range of topics related to our theme of constitutional reconciliation and Wahkotowin: Indigenous constitutionalism, including among the Inuit and MĂ©tis peoples; the relationship between Indigenous law and conceptions of Aboriginal rights under the Constitution Act, 1982; historic and/or contemporary treaty as a model for constitutional relations within Canada; Indigenous sovereignty, federalism, and constitutional law; and any other topics and approaches that will assist us in exploring our broader theme.
