Indigenous Law / Indigenous Legal Traditions

This guide looks at Indigenous legal traditions created by Indigenous legal orders.


The following pages have books and other resources on Indigenous legal traditions and oral traditions and traditional stories of selected Indigenous Nations across Canada.   The initial focus is on Nations that are focused on in the JD/JID program (Anishinaabe, Cree/Nehiyaw, Coast Salish, Gitxsan, and Tsilhqot'in Nations).  

This section will expand to include other Nations, starting with Indigenous Nations in BC and branching out further.
