The Conservation through Reconciliation Partnership and the IISAAK OLAM Foundation co-hosted a dialogue about emerging IPCAs across Turtle Island/Canada featuring Elders, community members and leaders from Kitskiinan Kawekanawaynichikatek IPCA (York Factory First Nation/Cree Territory/Northern Manitoba), Arqvillit IPCA (Inuit/Nunavik Territory/Northern Quebec), Bistcho Lake IPCA (Dene Tha’ First Nation/Northern Alberta), and Aki Sibi IPCA (Kebaowek First Nation/Algonquin Territory/Southern Quebec).

Moderated by Monica Shore (IISAAK OLAM Foundation), this session hosted a dialogue with Elder Dr. Flora Beardy (Kitskiinan Kawekanawaynichikatek IPCA), Shaomik Inukpuk (Arqvilliit IPCA), Matthew Munson (Bistcho Lake IPCA), and Justin Roy (Aki Sibi IPCA). This webinar explored a diversity of experiences in establishing IPCAs and was designed for Indigenous governments and their allies who are establishing, stewarding, or just curious about Indigenous-led conservation and Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas (IPCAs).
