(Re)Mapping Justice in Saskatoon: The wâhkôhtowin Project’s Digital Justice Map

Link to article: https://www.academia.edu/38503698/_Re_Mapping_Justice_in_Saskatoon_The_… This essay examines and provides context for a digital justice map created by the wâhkôtowin project, a class that brought together University of Saskatchewan students from the disciplines of Indigenous Studies, Law, and English, former gang members, and Indigenous high school students to study works concerning Indigenous justice. The 2016 class produced a digital ‘story map’ that plots class members’ experiences of justice and injustice in Saskatoon. This project worked to shift focus from official justice institutions to everyday places, experiences, and relationships. This essay provides sociohistorical context for the map as well as the wâhkôtowin class itself.
