Cheyenne is a lawyer and researcher who is passionate about advancing and protecting the title, rights, treaty rights and jurisdiction of Indigenous communities. She aims to decolonize and dismantle imposed colonial structures and processes through the recognition of Indigenous sovereignty and the inclusion of Indigenous Knowledge, legal orders, and worldviews. Cheyenne is currently working with the First Nations Leadership Council in developing a First Nations Climate Change Strategy in BC and will soon be taking on a researcher position at the University of Victoria’s Indigenous Law Research Unit. In her spare time, Cheyenne enjoys beading and hanging out with her dog named Duke!
