We learn from our ancestors, elders and our people that being out there on the land and water… What I used to ask my dad was: what is sovereignty? … What is our rights and title? And it’s simple; his answer is so simple: it’s being out there on the land and water and practising, doing it, practising your rights and your title. That’s how simple it is.

We travelled to communities in B.C. that are establishing Indigenous protected and conserved areas to share lessons learned.
Indigenous Peoples across Canada are taking a leadership role in protecting places that are essential to them and securing spaces where they can actively practise Indigenous ways of life.
