Research Topic: Indigenous Oral Histories of Water
The project focuses on the importance of Indigenous oral histories about water and water use as law (indigenous legal orders) in the Peace River Sub-Basin. Working collaboratively with Fort Nelson First Nation, the research will aim to increase understanding of how changes in the health of the water and access to water have altered the well-being of the community and what kinds of indigenous legal orders are needed to improved governance of the basin and heal the relationship between people and their environment.
