Constituting Indigenous Law with John Borrows: S1 Episode 5 RAVEN (De)Briefs

Immerse yourself in the profoundly poetic worldview and philosophy of Canada Research Chair and RAVEN legal advisory panel member John Borrows. His discourse is richly adorned with the shapeshifting sounds of Jeremy Dutcher, a classically trained musician who takes 100 year old wax cylinder recordings of his Wolastoq ancestors, and sets them to soaring strings and vocals. 

This is 30 minutes of pure inspiration to open hearts and arouse minds – have a listen, and please share and review on iTunes if what you hear resonates. 

“We are the legal agents in this world. We all have an opportunity to practice law. Sometimes that is done by standing side by side with Indigenous Peoples, and in some instances, providing resources to help Indigenous Peoples as they are raising their voice. 

So: providing resources is actually a practice of law – it’s a custom, that can be used to put us in relationship with one another. “ — John Borrows
