About Frankie Young:
Kwe’, I am a Mi’kmaw woman from the western coast of Ktaqmkuk in Atlantic Canada. It is my passion to bring to the legal academy important and critical legal research and teaching areas related to Indigenous economic development and self-government. My life’s work involves finding ways to improve the economic position of Indigenous peoples in Canada and, in my view, this is a critical time for this to happen. As an educator I love to teach students about the first inhabitants and guardians of the land and resources in Canada and how Indigenous peoples are a critical part of the economic fabric in the Canadian market economy. Indigenous entrepreneurs bring unique perspectives and creative talent and products to the market and coming generations will be important contributors to this end. I choose legal education as the avenue to impart critical legal knowledge to our communities, scholars and policy makers on the ways in which the law either supports or inhibits Indigenous economic development.

This session is part of Western's Indigenous Awareness Week - January 20-28, 2020. For more information about IAW visit www.indigenousweek.uwo.ca or follow #WesternuIAW.
