This brief provides an overview of a toolkit that was created by the Indigenous Knowledge Circle of the NBCKC to support individuals and organizations seeking to learn how to do things differently, how to avoid repeating the mistakes of the past, and how to embed reconciliation into our conservation and stewardship work. It highlights the need for resources to support steps toward reconciliation in conservation work and provides details on what users can find in each section of the toolkit.
- principles to guide collaboration across cultures (Indigenous and non-Indigenous);
- a set of practical considerations, frameworks, and guidelines for applying those principles; and
- links to many resources that can help you work more effectively and respectfully across cultures.
The goal of the brief is to raise awareness of the toolkit and how it can help individuals and organizations to advance genuine, respectful, and productive collaborations between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people and organizations working to protect and restore lands, waters, and all living beings.
