Weaving Our Stories Together – February 24th 2017


Dr. Lindberg is a citizen of As’in’i’wa’chi Ni’yaw Nation Rocky Mountain Cree and hails from the Kelly Lake Cree Nation community in BC. She is an award-winning academic writer and novelist who teaches Indigenous studies and Indigenous law at the University of Ottawa and Athabasca University.  Dr. Lindberg is thought to be the first Aboriginal woman in Canada to complete a graduate law degree from Harvard University and receive a doctorate in law from a Canadian university.  In 2007, she received the Governor General’s Award for her dissertation, entitled Critical Indigenous Legal Theory.  More recently, Dr. Lindberg has been involved with the Indigenous Speakers Series focusing on reconciliation and engagement with Canada’s indigenous peoples.
