About this event

This webinar is organized by the Prairie Climate Centre at the University of Winnipeg.

Featuring an in-depth conversation with Mi’kmaw Elder Albert Marshall – from Eskasoni First Nation in Unama’ki (Cape Breton) – this event will reflect on the importance of Indigenous knowledges in addressing climate change. Elder Marshall is a passionate advocate for cross-cultural understanding, linking Indigenous and Western ways of knowing, and coined the influential term “Two-eyed seeing.” Marshall defines Two-eyed seeing as “learning to see from one eye with the strengths of Indigenous knowledges and ways of knowing, and from the other eye with the strengths of mainstream knowledges and ways of knowing, and to use both these eyes together, for the benefit of all.” Given the climate and environmental crises, Elder Marshall will share his guidance on how respectful collaboration can help to create a new narrative that truly supports planetary health and well-being.

Please join us for this first event in an ongoing series about Indigenous knowledge, climate change, and resilience.

This training event is part of a larger series of events, delivered in collaboration with the Manitoba Climate Resilience Training (MCRT).

In the last decade, Indigenous peoples across Canada have been sounding the alarm about moose populations and their habitats. Moose, a species of deep importance to many Indigenous peoples, cultures, and communities across Canada, have declined in numbers dramatically in many areas – with far-reaching impacts to Indigenous communities, food security, cultures, and ways of life. Many Nations and Guardian programs have responded by developing moose monitoring and stewardship programs.

In response to inquiries, requests and discussion with community partners, the Indigenous Guardians Technical Support Team (TST) are convening a two part, interactive webinar series focused on Indigenous Guardians and Moose Monitoring & Stewardship.

Part 2 of this webinar series will highlight information, resources, and strategies that Indigenous Guardians and stewardship programs are using to address some of the challenges and questions raised during the first webinar session. You’ll learn about available resources to support Indigenous Guardians addressing moose issues. This interactive session will also be a chance to network and connect with other First Nations as you hear about the strategies and approaches others are using to monitor, steward and advocate for moose in their territories.
