What advice would you give unceded Nations (no treaty/land claims) in working with governments to co-develop a conservation agreement that recognizes indigenous jurisdiction but comes from a place of partnership.
Cheryl Chetkiewicz
01:43:39
Thank you for these excellent presentations and the discussion and haven't read the report yet. I'm interested in the focus on the conservation economy. Why does this idea resonate with communities and does it look differently across the land? Do you think the agreements reflect the Indigenous perspectives on conservation economy and makes the link to healthy communities, land, and wildlife more explicit?
Douglas Dillon
01:45:18
Thank you for this, very informative and good to hear! Mahsi,
Brad Barr
01:45:40
I realize the report is about forging these agreements, but what might also be valuable would be some critical assessment of the challenges of implementation of these agreements. I suspect that this would be where the Gwaii Haanas case study would offer great insight and guidance. Is there any intent to conduct such an assessment?

In southern BC local indigenous groups are buying an interest in the Tree Farms held by various logging companies. The $ may be coming from the government but this seems to be a model for First Nations having to buy back their land. Is this a reasonable way to give economic power to First Nations and how does this allow protection of remaining Old Growth forests where much of logging strategy is still set by the logging company as largest shareholder?

Question: Are there any general recommendations for early career conservation scientists who want to decolonize their work?
Kalene Gould
01:52:54
Brad, regarding critical assessment of implementation, while Firelight conducted some research on implementation of agreements and there is a limited review of this in the report, this is definitely an area for further work

We are a 100% Indigenous owned tour company doing cultural tours on the land, educating clients about our special relationships with the land. Is there a role for such Indigenous tour companies to play in the identification of lands for conservation and subsequent agreements? If so, how is this role recognized?
