Mural Timelapse

In January 2023 professor Aimée Craft and Decolonizing Water in partnership with the University of Ottawa’s faculty of Law, Common and Civil Law proposed to create something new at Fauteux Hall.

The result of the collaboration is a new mural painted on the third floor of Fauteux Hall, currently the home of the University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Law.

The design was created Indigenous art collective (Onaman Collective) to reflect Anishinaabe teachings and legal principles. The mural will be a teaching tool and a reminder of the importance of Indigenous legal traditions in Canadian law. This project represents a commitment to Indigenous legal orders and education in law schools, in line with the Truth and Reconciliation Call to Action 28.
