NRESi/FWCP Special Colloquium: Centring Indigenous Fisheries in Ways of Being, Knowing, Doing, and Connecting. Dr. Andrea Reid, UBC Institute for Oceans and Fisheries
Indigenous fisheries have so often been ignored, overshadowed, or in many cases supplanted by Western and dominant approaches to fishing since the onset of colonization. Our work in the Centre for Indigenous Fisheries in the Institute for the Oceans and Fisheries at the University of British Columbia, on xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) territory, is to challenge this frame and re-centre Indigenous fisheries as sites of knowledge building and sharing as well as community practice and connection. This talk by Dr. Andrea Reid, citizen of the Nisga’a Nation and Assistant Professor of Indigenous Fisheries at UBC, will introduce attendees to the Centre for Indigenous Fisheries – its membership and partnerships – committed to delivering science for the shared benefit of fish, people, and place.
The Natural Resources & Environmental Studies Institute (NRESi) at UNBC hosts a weekly lecture series at the Prince George campus.
