Reconsidering the Canadian Environmental Impact Assessment Act - a place for traditional environmental knowledge
There is a fundamental assertion by indigenous communities, which is now beginning to be recognized globally, that "we belong to the land." The position of indigenous people, both locally and globally, as traditional knowledge holders and legal entities with rights and title to lands is challenging the authority of nation states in the development and management of lands and resources. International bodies, such as the United Nations and World Bank, continually place emphasis on bridging the implementation gap between the inclusion and exclusion of indigenous communities in public policy. However, increasing tensions exhibited between indigenous nations and nation states continue to surface. Much needs to be written...
Land claim and treaty negotiations in British Columbia, Canada: Implications for First Nations land and self-governance. Les négociations sur les revendications territoriales et les traités en Colombie-Britannique, Canada
The participation of the Yukon First Nations in the development of the Kluane Land Use plan is examined. On the basis of key informant interviews, reviews of planning documents, legislation and relevant literature, the formulation of the Kluane Land Use plan will be examined, focusing specifically on the involvement of the Yukon First Nations. The development of the Greater Kluane Plan is an example of normative planning; the public participates in decision-making, to help determine what ought to be done. This was reflected in increased opportunities for Yukon First Peoples. First Nations had objectives that they wanted fulfilled namely involvement in decision-making, recognition of their traditional knowledge,...

Growing together: A principle-based approach to building collaborative Indigenous partnerships in Canada’s forest sector
With the exception of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people, most Canadians enjoy water security. Indigenous people are ninety times more likely than other Canadians to lack piped water. These disparities result from and maintain the colonial relationship between Canada and Indigenous peoples. As displaced people with values often in opposition to neo-liberalism, Indigenous people present an existential threat to Canadian identity, this identity having been created around possession of a vast land that extends to the North Pole, and subsequent heavy resource extraction throughout this land. To maintain Canada?s national identity and the activities that support it, Indigenous people have to be pushed to the figurative...
Over the last three years the author, along with his colleague Dr. James Kari, worked with First Nations in Alaska documenting their traditional knowledge of salmon. The objectives of this research are to provide fisheries biologists with information that could be useful in resource management and improve communications between First Nations and biologists. One of the problems is that within the scientific and management communities there is considerable uncertainty as to how traditional knowledge can contribute to scientific research. In this paper four ways that traditional knowledge can contribute to environmental research and resource management are outlined. These are: 1) Traditional knowledge has a chronological...
