Intergenerational Knowledge Sharing of Conservation Values in Indigenous Communities

Wednesday, April 19th 2017 at 1:00 PM Atlantic Daylight Time (ADT).

In this webinar, Dawn Foxcroft and Michelle Colyn discuss the power of inter-generational knowledge transmission between youth and elders and its connection to stewardship in Indigenous communities. As members of the Nuu-chah-nulth First Nation, along Canada’s West Coast, and working for Uu-a-thluk, Nuu-chah-nulth Tribal Council Fisheries, they bring a community perspective to this topic. They explore how assimilation tactics have caused a disconnection between elders and youth, and youth and the environment; why these relationships between the generations are fundamental to the health of aquatic resources; and they highlight approaches they have used to foster these inter-generational connections grounded in Nuu-chah-nulth principles.
