CELA is honoured to have hosted another webinar series with Gary Pritchard, Principal Consultant at 4 Directions Conservation Consulting. For 3 weeks starting on January 21, Gary talked to us about Indigenous ways of knowing, conservation strategies and decolonizing ecology. Following are the topics and dates of Gary’s webinars.
Jan 21 – Indigenous Place Making and Ethical Space/Ways of Knowing
Jan 28 – Indigenous Conservation Strategies and Practice
Feb 4 – Decolonizing Ecology
Related to these conversations, Gary also presented a 4-part webinar series in the spring, which introduced the topics of how to work with Indigenous peoples, how to achieve effective and meaningful engagement with Indigenous communities, and treaties as a foundation part of Canadian society. The last webinar in the series looked at how to develop successful relationships between municipalities and Indigenous communities.
