“Full Fledged Tricksters”: Val Napoleon & the Indigenous Law Research Unit
On this episode, we took a walk with the director of the world’s first Joint Degree Program in Indigenous and Common Law, Val Napoleon, and her colleague Rebecca Johnson. Meet Julianna Alexander, a Secwepmec elder and research partner with the Indigenous Law Research Unit, and student researcher and JID student Carolyn Belleau.
Hear from this dynamic team of passionate women as they share what it’s like to unearth, restore, revitalize and breathe life into Indigenous legal traditions whose wisdom and values show a way forward for living in right relationship with each other, and with the land. “Law is a verb: so is love.”
