Cultural Awareness and Learning: the Two-Eyed Seeing Workshop


This workshop, led by Alexandra Thomas (Tlowitsis) offers participants the opportunity to learn about Indigenous ways of knowing, and will help participants understand First Nations’ connection to their territories and the significance of this land’s history in today’s environment. From this workshop, anyone who works in natural resources will leave with a better understanding of Kwakwaka’wakw culture, worldviews, connections to land, and how history has shaped our relationship with the land.

Participants will learn how to build better relationships with Nations, and better understand the complexity of the socio-political landscape in which First Nations manage resources and offer solutions to natural resource challenges in this changing world. Participants will also learn about the future of Indigenous land management through the example of the Guardian Watchmen Program.

This workshop is partnered with the Ha-ma-yas Stewardship Network and the Nanwakolas Council Society. To find out more, please email: info@nanwakolas.com.
