13. Indigenous Knowledge and Indigenous Land & Resource Use

Understanding Aboriginal and Treaty Rights, Indigenous Knowledge (IK) and Indigenous Land and Resource Use (ILRU) are critical for avoiding and minimizing potential harms to Indigenous Peoples’ culture and territories

  • Indigenous Knowledge will be given equal weight with science in the environmental assessment
  • The IK Program can help to inform the design of the MFFN CAR and create strategies to protect culturally valuable areas and species
  • Members of the Project Team would like to meet with potentially impacted Indigenous communities to understand their Aboriginal and Treaty Rights and Interests, as well as their knowledge and use of the MFFN CAR Project area
