Workshop Tla-o-qui-aht Territory, British Columbia
Nov 4-8, 2013 (new deadline for submissions September 15, 2013)
A workshop will be held at the Tin Wis resort in Tofino, in the heart of Tla-o-qui-aht territory and in premises owned by Tla-o-qui-aht First Nations to place the Tribal Park model in the context of other concepts and approaches asserted in BC, in the rest of Canada and in other countries.
The workshop will provide an occasion to visit and understand the phenomenon of “conservation of First Nations’ Territories by and for First Nations” and discuss the strategic approaches and institutional arrangements that help to describe and defend it in the current context in BC, in Canada in general and in the international policy arena. The Tribal Park model will be described in more depth but other models from BC, the rest of Canada and other countries (e.g., the Philippines to Iran and USA) – will also be considered and compared.
Indigenous peoples from BC, Canada and the rest of the world and concerned practitioners, professionals, activists and scholars are encouraged to apply. Some limited financial support to cover local costs and travel costs is available and the application form to offer contributions and request support is downloadable below.
