The Reconciling Ways of Knowing
This forum, Indigenous Knowledge and Science, provides a timely opportunity to strengthen the relationships between the paradigms of Western scientific and Indigenous Traditional knowledge to meaningfully integrate Indigenous ways of knowing into stewardship policy and decision-making processes, ensure the ability of our lands, waters, and resources to provide for us now and for generations to come, facilitate a relationship between Indigenous Peoples and Canada in which the different ways of being and knowing are equitably recognized, respected and better positioned to work together for mutual benefit into the future, and achieve commitments to reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples.
