This video provides as overview of the recent Supreme Court of Canada case in Mikisew Cree Nation v. Canada. This is my assessment of the case and any errors should not reflect on Mikisew Cree Nation as I am not their spokesperson.

Here is the link to the actual court decision:
https://www.scc-csc.lexum.com/scc-csc/scc-csc/en/17288/1/document.do

Here is the link to the article I wrote about it in Maclean's:

*NOTE - My entire video did not upload properly and YouTube video editor would not splice it back in once I had published it.

The part that is missing from my video is the 4th take-away from the case and that is, that we as Indigenous peoples, are part of SOVEREIGN NATIONS.

We have our own laws, legal systems, and governments. We have the inherent right (pre-existing before contact) to govern ourselves according to our own customs, traditions and practices.

Our sovereignty and jurisdiction over our territories and peoples may be have been interrupted or impacted by colonization, but we have never surrendered, nor were we ever conquered.

So, the 4th take-away is that this court decision may be a hit to our Nations right now, but it is one more reason for us to continue to enact and enforce our own laws and continue to assert, live and defend our sovereignty.

We have the collective power to protect our rights and our territories.
