Specializing in Treaty and Aboriginal rights and legal historical research for Indigenous peoples
The Two Row Wampum is among the earliest of known wampum belts representing a treaty between the Indigenous peoples of North America and Europeans. This wampum symbolizes the elements of the treaty: an ongoing relationship of mutual respect between allies, in this case the Haudenosaunee and the Dutch government.
We practice Aboriginal law - representing Indigenous clients and providing assistance to their legal counsel.
Our particular expertise lies in legal and historical research regarding Aboriginal and Treaty rights in Canada, as well as genealogical - or family - history.
We also further Indigenous views of the environment by tying the past to the present.
Our goal is to develop creative but sound solutions to difficult problems.
