Indigenous laws are intrinsic to the stories of the lands where they originate. They instill interrelated principles that connect humans to lands, waters, and all the sentient beings who co-exist to regenerate life. Many Indigenous nations in B.C. are revitalizing their own laws on their ancestral lands.
Kamala Todd is a Cree Métis filmmaker, curator, community planner who works at Indigenizing place-making and decolonizing Canadian urban landscapes.
