Indigenous Governance - Whats the difference?

Feb. 8, 2022
4:30 PM ET 
(via Zoom)

Daniel Brant, Matthews Fellow in Global Public Policy, Adjunct Professor, School of Policy Studies

Every society in the world has a system and structure for governing itself. There are systems that appear to be inexperienced, some are exceptionally strong, some are highly organized and sophisticated, and some are vulnerable to the point of being annihilated. Governance plays an important role in how we undertake our everyday activities through the development and enforcement of policies which provide societal guardrails. Whether the governance role is undertaken by governments, institutions, sectoral or cultural groups, there is no question that governance responsibilities are required to be enacted. Colonization efforts to suppress Indigenous governance systems have been asserted for centuries but the roots of the Indigenous systems are still boiling in the hearts and minds of most Indigenous leaders and communities. So, what are the differences, and what does it means for a reconciliation agenda and are there incumbent responsibilities that need to be thoroughly examined by not only institutions but by our societies in general?
