About Me

Darcy Lindberg joined the Faculty as an assistant professor in 2019. His current doctoral research focuses on the constitutional and legal theory of Plains Cree peoples in relation to the land, water, and animals, and the trans-systemic relationships with Canadian constitutional law.

Lindberg earned his LLM at the University of Victoria. His thesis explored Cree legal orders through an examination of ceremonial rules of procedure and the transformation of gendered protocols. He has published and has publications forthcoming regarding Indigenous law and legal theory, Plains Cree constitutionalism and food sovereignty, and Indigenous citizenship orders.

Lindberg, who is mixed-rooted Plains Cree, was called to the BC and Yukon Bars in 2012. He practiced with Davis LLP in the Yukon Territory. He also has been involved in Indigenous-focused youth leadership development in Alberta for the past 15 years.
