A submission to the Special Rapporteur on the rights of Indigenous Peoples on: Indigenous Women and the Development, Application, Preservation and Transmission of Scientific Knowledge.

In a colonial system, people from the ‘dominant culture’ are born into a system of law, economics, politics and culture that rarely questions itself, and so for those in the ‘dominant culture’ it can be difficult at first to see outside that culture. The pathway forward demands exploring the most appropriate way to support Indigenous peoples. To do this appropriately, Indigenous leaders in this talking circle need to explore how to decolonise our legal system so that Indigenous Peoples and Indigenous First Laws can flourish.
