Description

Drawing on the insights of Indigenous feminist legal theory, Emily Snyder examines representations of Cree law and gender in books, videos, graphic novels, educational websites, online lectures, and a video game. Although these resources promote the revitalization of Cree law and the principle of miyo-wîcêhtowin (good relations), Snyder argues that they do not capture the complexities of gendered power relations. The majority of these resources either erase women’s legal authority by not mentioning them, or they diminish their agency by portraying Cree laws and gender roles in inflexible, aesthetically pleasing ways that overlook power imbalances and other forms of oppression.

Contributor Notes

Emily Snyder is an assistant professor in the Department of Indigenous Studies and the Women’s and Gender Studies Program at the University of Saskatchewan. She is a white settler committed to ongoing reflection about anticolonial feminist legal scholarship and teaching.
