NS 403/NS 503/LAW 599 – The ᐘᐦᑯᐦᑐᐏᐣ wahkohtowin Project Intensive: ᒥᔪ ᐑᒉᐦᑐᐏᐣ miyo-wîcêhtowin  Principles and Practice

The Cree concept of wahkohtowin (roughly: our inter-relatedness and interdependence) has been a central tenet of Cree law, philosophy, spirituality and politics for centuries. In this unique summer intensive course, guided by professors, elders, and knowledge-keepers within a community setting, students will actively engage with Indigenous – particularly Cree – legal and governance concepts from a land-based perspective. The course includes an on-the-land camp that will take place over three days in Aseniwuche Winewak territory and will be structured around a  central pedagogy of the traditional tanning of a moose hide.
