The Indigenous Health Law Centre is committed to advancing the mental, spiritual and physical health and well-being of First Nation, Metis and Inuit People through the study of the intersect between health and the law (western and Indigenous laws).
The physical centre was initially created from a grant from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation and set up at Brandon University while I (Yvonne) was a Canada Research Chair. There are a few photos of it on this page. We did good work there - we interviewed Elders and Knowledge Keepers about health practices that they practiced and what they remember their parents and grandparents practicing. We traveled to various communities and met with the most interesting and lovely people - we made good friends. We did work in the prison system, looking at health rights, looking at trans rights. We advocated on behalf of people who cannot speak for themselves.
The core purpose for the interviews was to prove Aboriginal rights as a precontact practice for section 35 rights (of the Constitution Act, 1982) - we also worked on oral negotiations of the numbered treaties and published several papers in academic journals.
We had the greatest team! Sheyenne Spence (who went on to law school), Adam Paul (on his way to law school), Julia Stoneman Sinclair (doing her Masters, https://www.gofundme.com/juliastonemansinclair), Joe Kruger (Canadian Armed Forces and student), Drew Spence (adventurer extraordinaire), Katie Sutherland (Articling student), Honorary Elder Grace Godmeier, Elder Frank Tacan, Helpers, Erin Fletcher (law student), Jade Fletcher (law student), Ayoola Odeyami (Lawyer) - we kicked butt!
