The Terry Project Podcast #13: Indigenous Rights and Title

On this, the 13th episode our program, we look at Aboriginal rights and title from Brazil to BC.

Chapter 1, “The murder Nisio Gomes,” the story of an indigenous person from the Guarani tribe of Brazil who was killed on his ancestral homeland. Chapter 2, “from Brazil to BC”, we look at the similarities of these two constitutions and how the legal system is serving or not serving indigenous groups. And chapter 3, “The Village of c̓əsnaʔəm”, also known as the Great Marpole Midden —’s Nick Thornton looks at a dispute between the Musqueam people and the developers who want to build a condo on this ancient burial site.
