She has a management degree (Lethbridge) and an LLB (Queen’s) and earned an LLM (Toronto), which has engaged her in a lifetime study of Indigenous jurisdiction’s important role in legally reconciling Indigenous sover- eignty in Canada. She has practised law as a solo practitioner and taught jurisprudence to undergraduate students after being an associate in a well-known Anishinaabe-led law firm in Ontario. In 2014, Sara was elected chief of Couchiching First Nation. She returned to law in 2016 by joining Olthuis Kleer Townshend. Sara is very proud of her partici- pation in the negotiations that led to the creation of the First Nations Sovereign Wealth LP, a partnership of 129 First Nations in Ontario that involved 14 million Hydro One shares and $29 million in seed capital. She is greatly interested in First Nations’ inherent regulatory authority
and advocating for their legitimate place in Canada.
