Lost from sight: Indigenous stories as sources of law

Abstract

What is the connection between traditional stories and law-making? Indigenous peoples, like all societies, developed legal systems based on cultural values and social needs. These legal systems existed prior to colonial law being introduced in settler states and continue to operate. In this paper, I will consider the role that Indigenous stories play in the creation and transmission of Indigenous law. In Aotearoa New Zealand, as the state legal system increasingly draws on Māori law, these stories are becoming an important driver of the development of the law, although this is not always obvious, or explicitly acknowledged. Questions of state recognition of customary law have tended to focus attention on common law tests and so obscure processes of the Indigenous legal system, the sources of Indigenous law, and Indigenous forms of legal reasoning and communication. But how might we understand the Indigenous source of this law on its own terms? Can Indigenous stories help us to better see the legal principles and processes at work? Are there ways of working with Indigenous stories as legal texts that might facilitate a more sophisticated engagement with Indigenous law in settler states?

Professor Karin van MarleBuilding C Lecture Theatre C1.05

Professor Karin van Marle
University of the Free State

Drawing on a number of perspectives and ideas, I want to consider the notion of the Constitution as a living document, the (im)possibility of politics and the (in)capacity of a constitution to allow for a politics that is not always already limited by its own structure.  What is crucial for me is the idea of ‘resistibility’ that could keep potential for politics, ‘community’ and with it world making, open. The drawings and technique of drawing followed by South African artist William Kentridge serve as inspiration for my reflections, in particular his embrace of hesitation, provisionality and doubt.

The concluding plenary session of the Law, Literature and the Humanities Association of Australasia 2019 conference will coincide with the 2019 Southern Cross University School of Law and Justice Greta Bird Lecture in Legal Theory and Critique.
