The North American Caribou Workshop (NACW) is held every two years, and is a central event for sharing Indigenous knowledge, science and lessons learned, reporting on caribou status and discussing approaches to address key challenges to caribou conservation, management and recovery.

The theme of NACW 2018 was “Working Together”, and had three main goals: 1- Translating knowledge into action, 2- Strengthening livelihoods and futures, and 3- Finding innovative solutions.

The Indigenous stream of NACW 2018 included a two-day Indigenous Talking Circle, Indigenous Meeting Spaces for cultural and creative expression, public events, youth-centered activities including a youth caucus, Indigenous guardian training, and a youth panel, and interviews with Indigenous leaders.
