When Naiomi Metallic joined the Schulich School of Law as a full-time faculty member in 2016, she arrived with a mantle and a mandate.

A member of the Listuguj Mi’gmaq First Nation, located on the Gaspé Coast of Quebec, and a 2005 alumna of the law school’s Indigenous Blacks & Mi’kmaq (IB&M) Initiative, Prof. Metallic had been awarded Dalhousie’s inaugural Chancellor’s Chair in Aboriginal Law and Policy. Although the Chair is physically seated in the law school, it is intended to be interdisciplinary, which means Prof. Metallic collaborates not only with her Schulich School of Law colleagues, but also across other Dalhousie faculties and beyond.
