The Tsilhqot’in Title Case Two Years On: An Update

Chief Roger William (Xeni Gwet’in) has been in leadership for his community for more than 25 years, serving as Plaintiff in the landmark Tsilhqot’in Title case. He is the Vice-Chairman of the Tsilhqot’in National Government. Growing up speaking the Tsilhqot’in language and learning the songs and stories of his nation, Chief William is also a skilled drummer as well as a horseman whose rodeo and mountain-race wins are legendary in Tsilhqot’in territory. Committed to moving forward with his people while inspiring knowledge of language and culture among youth, Chief William is a dynamic and engaging speaker. He will be speaking about developments in relation to the Title case since the Supreme Court of Canada victory in 2014.

A light lunch will be served.
