WCS Canada is supporting the Fawn River Indigenous Protected Area with Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug First Nation. To help with this work, we have compiled an Atlas summarizing the published scientific information about the Fawn River watershed, both the animals found there and the freshwater and terrestrial ecosystems, including carbon-rich areas.
Join us next week when we’ll be continuing our discussion on Indigenous Knowledge (IK) with a discussion on weaving IK into environmental / impact assessment. This is the second in a three-part series on IK.
Minister Guilbeault: Respect all Treaty 9 peoples’ relationship to the watershed! (ft. Chief Wayne Moonias)
“Today’s part of the Treaty Peoples’ Briefing comes from Chief Wayne Moonias, of Neskantaga First Nation. In this video, Chief Wayne talks about how integral the river system is to all communities in Treaty 9, and how interconnected these neighbouring communities really are.”
“You’ve probably heard that ‘critical minerals’ are essential in a just transition to a green economy. But there’s more to the story. Today’s part of the Treaty Peoples’ Briefing comes from Jamie Kneen, of MiningWatch Canada.”
“We are all treaty peoples, and that comes with both rights and responsibilities. You say you want to be a part of that, to stand for Treaty rights and obligations, and for our common climate future. And the first step is to listen.”
Join us on our next session where we’ll be starting our discussion on Indigenous Knowledge (IK) with a general introduction to the topic. This will be the first in a three-part series on IK.
Injunctions are often favourably granted by the courts against First Nations to corporations to continue to proceed with work unimpeded, and then enforced by RCMP without respect for Free, Prior and Informed Consent or Indigenous laws.
We will be having a discussion on the Ontario and Federal environmental/ impact assessments, including the steps involved, the differences between the two processes, and the general approach taken while conducting these assessments.
