Building Canada's Future through Research
The Canada Council for the Arts administers and promotes this program, which has two components, the Killam Prizes and the Killam Research Fellowships.
The Killam Prize introduced my work related to Indigenous legal traditions to a wider audience. Indigenous peoples’ own laws have implications for contemporary communities and Canada more generally. Receiving a Killam widened the circle of interest in my research.

The Killam Fellowship gave me the unique opportunity to focus on a type of research that required deep commitment and devotion, which would have been impossible with the multi-tasking of a regular academic life. I am grateful to the Canada Council for supporting, through me, research with Indigenous language partners.
