Two years ago the Hul'qumi'num Treaty Group of Vancouver Island brought a complaint against Canada before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights in Washington. Their lawyer was Robert Williams, professor of law at the University of Arizona and a member of the Lumbee Indian Tribe. He is one of the world’s leading experts on Native American law and indigenous peoples' human rights. Robert Williams was in Vancouver on May 9 to talk about this case and about his new book Savage Anxieties. The talk was organized by Lawyers Rights Watch Canada.
