Traditional Knowledge

The Traditional Knowledge Program is responsible for gathering and recording Elder’s knowledge of the land. From camps, cabins and trails to graves, sacred sites,  place names and archaeological sites this valuable historical and cultural data is being stored in a Geographical Information System. Currently, a backlog of information gathered over the past 40 years is being entered into the system. Data from Traditional Knowledge workshops, gathered during Environmental Assessments, is also being entered into the system.

Knowing how and where our ancestors used the land will help us protect it for future generations.
