Environmental Studies 1190 Indigenous Knowledge, Science and the Environment View Details
Current environment and sustainability issues will be examined using a geographical approach that incorporates Indigenous knowledge, worldviews and practices. By comparing traditional ecological knowledge with western scientific approaches, students will gain an enhanced understanding of ecosystems and society’s place within it. The course engages students in case studies that exemplify the role of Indigenous Peoples in ecosystem management in Canada, in particular. The role of treaties and aboriginal rights in federal and provincial environment and resource management, the impact of environmental law decisions on Indigenous Peoples, and the adversarial and collaborative roles that Indigenous Peoples play to respond to current environmental changes and challenges will be the focus of key topics.
