Terri-Lynn Williams-Davidson

Vancouver
Principal Lawyer, White Raven Law

Terri-Lynn Williams-Davidson is an Indigenous and environmental lawyer who has, since her call to the B.C. bar in 1996, represented the Haida Nation before all levels of court, including the Supreme Court of Canada. Williams-Davidson is committed to defining and transforming relationships between Indigenous communities, the judiciary and the Crown. She has participated in cases and in reconciliation negotiations advocating the Haida Nation’s rights to lands, waters and resources. She has challenged the Enbridge Northern Gateway Project. She recently appeared before the Supreme Court of Canada to help the justices understand Indigenous laws and their role in co-operative federalism. She also leads a case that asks for a declaration of Aboriginal title to Haida Gwaii and which may potentially be the first case in Canada to address Aboriginal title to ocean spaces. She seeks to preserve Haida laws and culture through her activism, music and art. She is a member of the Raven Clan from the Haida Nation.
