IPAC is hosting a five-part webinar series scheduled over 2021 that will explore the underlying themes of the project and the work with First Nations communities that are on the path to exercising their inherent right to self-government. Upcoming scheduled dates and topics are:
- April 28:The five pillars of the Inherent Right to Self-Government
- June 23: The “ill-fitting boot” – the origin and content of the Indian Act
- September 22: It’s A “Full Box”. The Historical Struggle for Recognition of Aboriginal And Treaty Rights
- November 17: From theory to practice: Principles and Strategies for Implementing the Inherent Right to Self-government
This series will be of primary interest to First Nations leaders, administrators and citizens who want to learn about their inherent rights; how the Indian Act obstructs their ability to develop effective self-governance and take their rightful place as citizens within their own nations and within Canada; and the power that citizens have to transform the way their nation is governed.
