Provincial Court Judge Karen Crowshoe will be sworn in Friday afternoon

Apr 13, 2018

Karen Crowshoe’s Blackfoot heritage will be celebrated Friday when she is sworn in as Alberta’s first female Indigenous provincial court judge.

Crowshoe grew up on the Piikani First Nation in a three-room home shared by 11 family members. On Friday afternoon, friends, colleagues new and old, family and members of the Piikani, Kainai and Siksika First Nations will gather in Calgary’s massive ceremonial courtroom to honour the new judge.

In 1994, Crowshoe was the first Blackfoot woman to be called to the Alberta Bar.

Crowshoe has acknowledged the power of her story to inspire others and credits her parents with pushing her to “strive every day to overcome the challenges that plague Indigenous people,” according to a statement prepared ahead of the ceremony by Assistant Chief Judge Joanne Durant.
