Cole Sayers and Chelsea Vowel on Tsilhqot’in Nation “Aboriginal Title” Supreme Court Case

The Supreme Court of Canada decision in Roger William (on behalf of the Tsilhqot’in Nation) v BC marks the first time that a court has granted Aboriginal title to a specific land area in Canada – in this case, over unceded Tsilhqot’in territory. The Court also found that British Columbia breached its duty to consult when it made land use planning decisions and issued forestry licences over the lands where title was claimed by the Tsilhqot’in First Nation.

Cole Sayers and Chelsea Vowel joined Indigenous Waves last month, each to give an analysis of the decision, what the implications are of going through colonial courts, as well as what this means for future decisions of title and land.
