About the Author:
Sarah Morales’ research interests are generally in the area of Aboriginal and human rights law. Specifically, she is committed to the recognition and reconciliation of Indigenous legal traditions with the common law and civil law traditions in Canada. Her dissertation, entitled “Snuw’uyulh: Fostering an Understandingo of the Hul’qumi’num Legal Tradition”, examines the Coast Salish legal tradition and attempts to demonstrate the significance of this legal tradition within the Canadian legal system. In addition to these academic interests, Sarah has been actively involved with Indigenous nations and NGOs across Canada through her work in nation building, inherent rights recognition and international human rights law. Her community based research has resulted in the creation of policies and procedures that are reflective of the traditional laws of the communities who utilize them.
