First Peoples Law Multimedia List

By Bruce McIvor

To accompany our readings lists, I thought it would be useful to share a list of multimedia resources for anyone looking to learn more about Indigenous rights in Canada through podcasts, videos and other media.

I hope you find it informative and helpful. It's a work in progress, not a comprehensive list. I would welcome your suggestions.


Here's a list of excellent podcasts covering a variety of important topics.

I'm grateful to have been a guest on a couple of them.

We also launched our own podcast this year featuring conversations on the defence of Indigenous rights!

Film & Video

Check out the National Film Board's Indigenous cinema collection.

Here are some of my personal recommendations.

Check out these informative channels on YouTube.

Indigenous Foundations also offers lots of valuable resources developed by the First Nations Studies Program at UBC, including a video lecture series on governance and land claims.

Truth & Reconciliation

Here are some helpful resources relating to the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, including a video reading of the TRC Final Report.

Lectures & Courses

Here are a couple free online courses on Indigenous rights in Canada.

Lastly, here is the syllabus for my previous course on current issues in Aboriginal law at UBC, including some additional resources like lecture presentations and YouTube clips.
