Indigenous Leadership | Inherent Right to Indigenous Governance Online
This online offering of the Inherent Right to Indigenous Governance Program will illuminate foundational principles of effective and responsible governance. Together we will explore the relationships that animate Indigenous governance (historical and contemporary), our resources for revitalizing and creating new governance processes, the possibilities and challenges of rights recognition and implementation, and various pathways to Indigenous resurgence within the current legal and political context.
