John Borrows, Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Law, will deliver the 2019 Hagey Lecture, “Living Indigenous Law in Canada,” at the University of Waterloo on March 25.
In this talk, Borrows will blend Anishinaabe stories, language, theories and practices with analysis of Canadian law to illustrate the possibilities and limits of the seven grandmother/grandfather teachings: love, truth, bravery, humility, wisdom, honesty and respect.
The lecture is at 7:00 p.m. in Federation Hall on March 25. All guests are invited to the catered reception after the lecture, during which some of Borrows' books will be available for purchase.

2019 Hagey Lecture
Waterloo's premier invitational public lecture series since 1970, the Hagey Lectures – named after the university's first president – are co-sponsored by the Faculty Association and the University of Waterloo. The annual lectures are intended to challenge, stimulate and enrich not only the faculty, staff and students of the University, but all members of this community.
