Natan Obed, President, Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami will speak on: Considering Canada’s renewed relationship with Indigenous Peoples through the rights-based lens of Inuit self-determination.

The Canadian federal government seeks reconciliation with Indigenous peoples, and has promised many different legislative, policy, and program reforms. Inuit, along with First Nations and Metis, are recognized under section 35 of the constitution and exercise these rights through an Inuit democracy that spans from the community level to the international level. The practical, political, and visionary aspects of how Inuit are self-determining our space within this time of reconciliation will be discussed.
