Part II and Part III: Knowledge Keeper, Expert and Institutional Hearings
Knowledge Keeper, Expert and Institutional Hearings
The Knowledge Keeper, Expert and Institutional Hearing is designed to be trauma-informed and to ensure the National Inquiry receives the best possible information and advice from the witnesses – evidence that helps the National Inquiry understand the systemic causes of violence against Indigenous women, girls and 2SLGBTQQIA peoples and develop concrete recommendations that will reduce violence and increase safety.
The witnesses testifying before the Commissioners consist of a wide range of knowledge keepers, academics, leaders and institutional representatives. Only a witness qualified as an expert can provide an expert opinion. The other witnesses are either knowledge keepers, institutional representatives or witnesses recognized for their knowledge, academic study, and experiences.
