Indigenous Leadership Initiative
A new report says Indigenous guardians programs in the N.W.T. that use traditional knowledge to help preserve Indigenous culture and land are delivering “significant social, economic, and environmental benefits.”
The Indigenous Leadership Initiative fosters Indigenous nationhood as a way to conserve and manage Indigenous lands. An Indigenous-led effort, it empowers Indigenous governments, communities and Nations to honour and fulfill our cultural responsibility to the land.
