Kiera Ladner




Dr. Kiera Ladner holds the Canada Research Chair in Indigenous politics and governance. Her research project on constitutional reconciliation examines the potential for political reconciliation between Indigenous nations and the settler state, given the long history of injustice, discrimination, oppression, domination, regime replacement and the (attempted) destruction of nations. Dr. Ladner has also developed Mamawipawin – a space for community-based research with Indigenous Peoples.
