This is a very special area of law for me and involves understanding and being sensitive to Aboriginal cultures; different Traditional practices; treaties and laws that apply to Aboriginal Peoples. I have represented Aboriginal communities and organizations as well as Elders and individual Aboriginal clients. Who I am enables me to share some of my teachings and experiences in a good way. Aboriginal justice practices are of importance to me along with the development of contemporary models of dispute resolution that respect Traditional practices in Aboriginal communities.
Some of the areas of Aboriginal Law that I have experience in include: band accountability practices; clan council systems; employment practices; band council policy practices and interpretation; education; Indian residential school claims; family law issues affecting spouses, children, custody issues, and property rights; disputes concerning healing lodges, Elders and Traditional practices; wills and estates; issues dealing with fishing, hunting and trapping rights; land and property rights; economic development and joint venturing; copyrights and contracts; on reserve civil disputes; selective criminal cases and the restorative justice practices.
