In this episode of our ongoing journey to learn more about the Indigenous experience of life in Canada, we explore what Indigenous relationship to the land really means. It's a whole lot more than finding a dot on a map! We're referencing Module 8 in the Indigenous Canada Course.
From Indigenous worldview to Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) to the impacts of settlement on Indigenous people, and to key legal decisions around Aboriginal Land Title: we seek to understand the importance of the land in matters of economy, culture, health and spirituality. We take a look at threats to Indigenous lands, and what's being done to address ongoing harms .
