In the realm of Indigenous law, Aaron stands out as a fervent champion for the rights of Indigenous Nations, offering guidance to these communities on governance, economic prosperity, and collaborative decision-making processes. His commitment extends to addressing justice issues, with a special focus on the resurgence of Indigenous legal traditions. Having held the esteemed positions of chief and councillor for the Lower Nicola Indian Band, Aaron brings invaluable insights into the complexities facing Indigenous clients, backed by his tenure in leadership roles.

His journey in the legal domain is marked by significant achievements, including his tenure as a criminal defense attorney dedicated to advocating for Residential School Survivors in their quest for justice, showcasing his ability to navigate through various levels of the Canadian legal system, from Provincial Courts to the Supreme Court of British Columbia. Beyond the confines of his professional duties, Aaron finds solace in the embrace of his family, exploring the great outdoors, indulging in literature, and immersing himself in the study of the nłeʔkepmxcin language, reflecting a life rich in personal and cultural engagement.

Aaron's legal acumen is solidified by his formal education and recognitions, starting with his call to the British Columbia Bar in 2006, following his graduation from the University of British Columbia with a Law LLB degree in 2004, and a foundation in Environmental Studies from California State University, Sacramento, earned in 1999. His leadership and dedication to Indigenous causes have also seen him ascend to notable positions, including the presidency of the BC NDP since 2021, alongside roles such as chairing the Indigenous Business and Investment Council, directing the BC First Nations Justice Council, and contributing as a council member to British Columbia’s Climate Solutions and Clean Growth Advisory Council, painting a picture of a life dedicated to service, both within and beyond the legal arena.
