Yves Faguy speaks with law professor Tuma Young, KC, of Cape Breton University about the revitalization of Indigenous legal orders and what it means to braid them into Canada’s contemporary system of laws.

Young, who grew up in the traditions of the Eskasoni First Nation, is a researcher and an assistant professor in Indigenous studies and political science at Cape Breton University (CBU). He also served as the Nova Scotia Barrister’s Society’s first Indigenous president in 2021-2022.

His research primarily focuses on the analysis of L’nu worldview – L’nu being the term the Mi'kmaq use to describe themselves – traditional concepts of governance, and how they can be used in contemporary legal institutions.
