Catherine Bell discusses the Tsilhqot'in ruling (2014), and explores how Canadian Aboriginal rights law and consultation is applied to First Nations heritage sites, the challenges to realizing First Nation ownership and control through Canadian Constitutional Law, the unique issues that arise when heritage sites are located on private land, and the need for legal and policy reform. Catherine Bell is Professor of Law at the University of Alberta, specializing in Aboriginal legal issues, cultural heritage law and collaborative, community-based legal research. She is internationally recognized for her work in the area of cultural heritage law and Indigenous peoples.
This talk was presented on January 8, as a part of the SFU President's Dream Colloquium on Protecting Indigenous Cultural Heritage. RESOURCESDeclarationsReportsPublicationsPresentationsVideosPodcastsFact SheetsTeaching ResourcesReading ListsLinks
