In celebration of National Indigenous Peoples Day, join us on June 21, 2023 for a discussion on the Self-Government Treaty Recognizing the Whitecap Dakota Nation/ Wapaha Ska Dakota Oyate. We will hear from Murray Long (Director, Self-Government for Whitecap Dakota First Nation) and Aaron Christoff (partner, Gowling WLG) on the protection of Indigenous language and culture through self-government agreements and modern treaties.
This webinar will address:
- What is Whitecap Dakota Nation’s Self-Government Treaty and how did it come about?
- How does the Self-Government Treaty reconcile Whitecap Dakota’s traditional knowledge and intellectual property?
- What kinds of initiatives are Whitecap Dakota working on to promote and protect its language and culture? What funding arrangements are in place to support that work?
- What should intellectual property lawyers know about the likely impact of agreements and treaties like Whitecap Dakota’s Self-Government Treaty on their practice?
