She:kon! My name is Lauren! I am Kanien’keha:ka with my roots in Tyendinaga. I am currently located in Tkaronto.

After a short career in Canadian law and policy, I have decided that the best way for me to give back to my Indigenous relatives is to bring back our traditional ways of resolving disputes. I want to create space for Indigenous peoples to build or rebuild peaceful relations staying away from the Canadian court system. Many aspects of Canadian Law are not our way and we need to get back to our traditions.

Why Indigenous Dispute Resolution?

Canadian court processes are lengthy and expensive. It involves Canadian laws being applied to complex and historic Indigenous issues and, often times, the people making final decisions are not Indigenous. Indigenous Dispute Resolution is rooted in peace-making and the traditional values that go into peaceful relationship building. At Tewatate:ken we use the Seven Grandfather Teachings and the teaching of the Great Law, as well as others, to help our clients resolve disputes. Let’s get back to our roots.
