Wednesday, February 3, 2021, 14:15 - 15:00 ET ​

Indigenous Peoples in Canada have long been stewards of our lands and waters. That ethic of stewardship is the foundation of our relationship with the land. We are also in a process of re-appropriation of our roles and responsibilities as the Nations that we are, poised to be true and meaningful partners with Canada in ensuring our shared prosperity and sustainability into the future. Anchored in the tradition of storytelling, this keynote will explore the narrative of responsibility within the Indigenous approach to caring for lands and waters.
