About us

About us

The State and Indigenous Legal Cultures: Law in Search of Legitimacy or, simply put, the Legitimus Project, is an international and comparative partnership which aims to better understand the conditions for the development, in Canada and in other regions of the world, of legal systems that manage the collaboration between Indigenous and non-Indigenous legal cultures through processes that contribute to a more legitimate and efficient governance.

The Latin word “Legitimus” means both “according to law” and “in accordance with accepted rules”. We chose it as the official nickname for the project because to us, it reconciles state and indigenous perspectives on law in one powerful keyword.
