This course introduces students to the sources and resources for practicing Indigenous law from a landbased perspective. The class will take place over four days at Neyaashiinigmiing, the Cape Croker Indian Reserve on the Bruce Peninsula on Georgian Bay. Students will learn Anishinaabe law and legal tradition by on-site reference to treaties, cases, stories, water, rocks, plants, and animals. As a course in outdoor legal education students are expected to engage with Elders, Chiefs, Lawyers, Councilors and the landscape at Neyaashiinigmiing in active and respectful ways. Students will travel to the site together on Thursday, September 8th, and camp as a group on the First Nation's Park lands, returning Sunday, September 11. They will spend their days learning in and around the community.
