Visit by Judge Diane J. Humetewa

U.S. District Court Judge Diane Humetewa and the first Native American woman to be presidentially appointed to the Federal bench, visited Montreal to address a variety of audiences on several topics including higher education, American cultural property law, Federal Indian Law and American Indian tribal court systems.

During her visit, she toured the Ashukan Cultural Space and met with key contacts at two separate roundtables organized by the Consulate and by NATIONAL Public Relations. Judge Humetewa also toured the Kanesatake Mohawk Territory in the company of Grand Chief Serge Simon and several Council members, met with First Nations, Métis and Inuit students from both McGill and Concordia universities at McGill University’s First Peoples’ House and gave a public talk about courts, adjudication and Native American legal traditions to a sold-out crowd at an event organized by McGill University’s Centre for Human Rights and Legal Pluralism.
