Join us to watch and discuss documentaries created by speakers at our conference.
"But I Was Wearing A Suit Part II" + Q&A with Vikaash Prasad:
"But I Was Wearing a Suit" is a mini-documentary about the racism that Indigenous lawyers and law students face within the legal profession. It is a grassroots project of a group of Indigenous lawyers, produced with the support of the Continuing Legal Education Society of BC and the Law Society of BC.
"Borderstory" with Q&A + Dr. Erin Goheen Glanville:
"Borderstory" tells a familiar story about the border as the primary tool for citizens' safety. It seems true because it has been repeated so often. But displaced people tell more interesting, complex stories. "Borderstory" invites you into a dialogue about borders led by people on the move. What do you believe to be true about borders? What might you learn from other experiences? What's your border story?
"Older Than the Crown" + Q&A with Shelly Boyd and Derrick LaMere:
"Older Than the Crown" follows the trial of Sinixt tribal member Rick Desautel who in 2010 was charged with hunting as a non-resident and without a proper permit in Canada. Rick harvested an elk on the ancestral land of the Sinixt people in Vallican, BC, Canada. To the Sinixt, hunting on ancestral land is an Aboriginal right gifted to them by Creator. A right that has legally been denied to the Sinixt people since 1956 when the Canadian government unjustly declared them extinct in Canada, despite the nearly 3,000 members existing on the Colville Indian Reservation in Washington State. Now with the Desautel Hunting Case, the Sinixt people have a chance to not only bring light to their unjust extinction by the Canadian government, but also abolish the declaration completely.
