We have heard from teachers, knowledge keepers, activists for decades imploring the non-indigenous policy makers that Traditional Knowledge is key in the protection and preservation of our waters. We have heard countless speaker’s advocate for the inclusion of Traditional Knowledge in frameworks of conservation, in environmental assessments.
Lake Winnipeg Indigenous Collective considers the real need for a conversation on a complex problem. How do we credit, honour, and pay fairly for the knowledge shared? How is the memory, intention, and viability of how we protect our sacred waters are attributed and not stolen.
This panelist discussion will engage in a dialogue on how Traditional Knowledge could be credited with meaningful and fair reciprocity in modern times.
