Nicole Schabus, Arthur Manuel’s partner in life and work from the local to the international level, continues to teach law in Secwepemc’ulecw. She drafted the first ever Indigenous submissions to international trade tribunals setting out that failure to recognize Aboriginal Title and Rights constitutes a subsidy under international trade law. She also covers international environmental negotiations, with a focus on traditional knowledge. Nicole is passionate about ensuring recognition of Indigenous territorial authority as a way to ensure more environmentally, economically, and culturally sustainable development. Nicole has been travelling the globe studying and working with Indigenous peoples in the Americas, Australia ,and Europe. She is grateful for all the teachings that have been shared with her, that have enabled her to navigate the greatest loss in her life and find her path from here.
