Donald Marshall Jr. and the Mi'kmaw Quest for Justice

Book - 2018
Rate this:
"The name "Donald Marshall Jr." is synonymous with "wrongful conviction" and the fight for Indigenous rights in Canada. In Truth and Conviction, Jane McMillan--Marshall's former partner, an acclaimed anthropologist, and an original defendant in the Supreme Court's Marshall decision--tells the story of how Marshall's life-long battle against injustice permeated Canadian legal consciousness and revitalized Indigenous law. Marshall died in 2009, but his legacy lives on. Mi'kmaq continue to assert their rights and build justice programs grounded in customary laws and practices, key steps in the path to self-determination and reconciliation."--From publisher.
