Launching on the week of July 15th, the new Indigenous Law Portal on LLMC digital has given a boost to researching indigenous law.
The portal is divided up by regions, with separate areas for Canada, the U.S., Mexico, and Central America. Within each region, it lists the various indigenous bands, as well as the leading indigenous organizations, and treaties (if any). The portal also contains international content, such as the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
Although the site is still quite new, and some areas do not yet have any information, the fact that LLMC has brought all of this together in one database is something that should help guide researchers in their quest for more information about the multi-layered indigenous legal area.
Osgoode and York staff, students and faculty are able to view LLMC Digital from the law library homepage at https://www.osgoode.yorku.ca/library/
