Indigenous-led Conservation at Miawpekek First Nation
Friday, Nov. 4, 3-4 p.m.
Geography Blue Box Seminar
Who: Gregory Jeddore
When: November 4th, 3-4pm
Where: CSF 1302
Description: Conservation has always been fundamental to the way Miawpukek First Nation (MFN) chooses to manage its traditional territory. These lands have supported our people for thousands of years. They also support high ecological values, including intactness, caribou, complete watersheds, species-at-risk, important waterways, wetlands, and coastal boreal forests. MFN will develop a traditional land-use plan for our traditional territory, and this will include sites that will be identified as Indigenous Protected Areas.
