Indigenous Environmental Justice, Knowledge and Law - 2019 Graham Lecture

Mon Jun 10, 2019, Ottawa, ON

Deborah McGregor, Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Environmental Justice, presents the 2019 Katherine Graham Lecture on Indigenous Policy.

This presentation will explore ideas around the potential for advancing environmental justice (EJ) through engaging with Indigenous intellectual and legal traditions. By grounding EJ in Indigenous epistemological and ontological foundations, a distinct and alternative EJ framework emerges. It is anticipated that such engagement will be lead to a renewed vision for achieving justice. In support of this goal, Dr. McGregor highlights the philosophy referred to by the Anishinabek as mino-naadmodzawin (“living well” or the “good life”), common to a number of Indigenous epistemologies, that considers the critical importance of mutually respectful and beneficial relationships not only among peoples, but among all our relations. Mino-naadmodzawin provides a foundation for standard of conduct that will be required if society is to begin engaging in appropriate relationships with all of Creation, thereby establishing a sustainable and just world.

The lecture will be preceded by a reception from 5:00 - 5:30PM. Please register to attend on our website.
