The K’ómoks Constitution has been drafted by K’ómoks members and guided by legal professionals. There have been many conversations of how to incorporate culture and specific K’ómoks concepts of law. A major consideration in not incorporating certain traditions and culture was because after Constitution becomes law, it now becomes a part of BC and Canadas legal fabric and can be challenged in court.
For instance, there may be a situation where the Constitution is challenged due to a misinterpretation of a cultural concept, the interpretation of that cultural concept can change in court and become common law in Canada and BC.
There will be room to build our cultural concepts onto policies and regulations to reflect our traditions and teachings.
