The Conservation through Reconciliation Partnership (CRP) and the IISAAK OLAM Foundation (IOF) launched an IPCA Governance Series with a webinar on “Governance of Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas (IPCAs)”. This event featured Elder Larry McDermott (CRP Elder’s Lodge), Governance Monica Mulrennan (CRP Governance Stream Lead), and Steven Nitah, Marilyn Baptiste, Lisa Young, and Eli Enns (CRP Leadership Circle members and former core members of the Indigenous Circle of Experts). This dialogue introduces foundational concepts about Indigenous approaches to governance, highlighting different examples from Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation (BC), Miꞌkma’ki (NS), Łutsël K’é Dene First Nation (NWT), and the Xeni Gwet’in First Nation (BC).
