Why did Canadian Indigenous students living on reserves receive less funding for their schools than other Canadian children for decades? How did neighbors become separate and unequal? Stobo Sniderman and Lorena Fontaine (University of Winnipeg) are trying to answer these questions by studying 140 years of history of a reserve and the neighboring town in rural Manitoba. Their research explores a case of discrimination from the perspectives of an Indigenous community and a non-Indigenous community. Stobo Sniderman, Scholar in Residence at NYU Law School’s Center for Human Rights and Global Justice, will present some of their main conclusions.
