Delia Opekokew

Delia Opekokew was 8 years old before she learned English, making her current private law practice in Toronto a testament to her ability to adapt. Meshing urban lawyer and scholar with tradition, Delia has used her upbringing to ground her work as she furthers the cause of justice for Aboriginal people, and the civil liberties and human rights for all Canadians. Representing Dudley George’s family, fighting for the compensation and redress of First Nations land claims as well as First Nations war veterans, Opekokew’s work speaks for itself in its scope for change.
