Nawendiwin – The Art of Being Related – Anishinaabeg Kinship-Centred Governance & Family Law

Funded by the Law Foundation of Ontario and the McConnell Foundation

In partnership with Niijkiwendidaa Anishnaabekwewag Services Circle, this project articulates how principles and processes within an Anishinaabe legal tradition inform and legitimize community governance. Over the course of this research collaboration, the ILRU team will facilitate community workshops and focus groups, and they will also analyze available legal precedents and resources. This work will be synthesized to create a report, toolkit, and/or casebook for the ongoing work of upholding Anishinaabe law within community governance.
