The University of Saskatchewan College of Law will be hosting a lecture talking about decolonizing Canada’s system.

The talk is set to go Jan. 30 at the College of Law in Saskatoon and will feature lawyer David Nahwegahbow, who will be talking about some of the progress which has been made on this front along with where improvements are still needed.

The talk is part of the Wunusweh lecture series, which is put on annually at the college which focuses on Indigenous issues in the justice system. Judge Gearld Morin, who graduated from the U of S law school in 1987 and helped establish the lecture series in 2012, explained he felt it was an important that Indigenous subjects be brought up in an academic setting.
