Testify: Indigenous Law and the Arts


Course description

The exhibition Testify is a celebration of Indigenous Laws as expressed through art. The TRC Calls to Action identify the need to change the way we think about law, and to challenge the absence of Indigenous laws in the landscape. Art is a powerful way to do that. This workshop invites educators into a dialogue about how to put reconciliation into practice by creating a space for Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians to dream ways forward which respect and reflect the diversity, strength and hope embodied within Indigenous traditions. Through discussion and engaging with the exhibition participants will explore some of the following topics:

  • Laws about people and our interrelationships with each other and our living world
  • Laws about lands
  • Laws about water
  • Laws about children and families
  • Indigenous laws about justice/fairness
  • Laws about women and their places of power and honour in Indigenous societies
  • Indigenous laws in land and resource use decisions

Learning objectives

Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Understand Indigenous laws are vibrant and necessary
  • Identify the important relationship between art and law in Indigenous traditions.
  • Incorporate discussions about Indigenous laws into classroom curriculum
