Wîyôw’tan’kitaskino (Our Land is Rich): (Winter 2015) Building on past studies by Mikisew and Firelight, this work took an innovative community-based approach to assess effects of a large proposed oil sand mine on Mikisew Cree culture and rights. The work combined oral histories, knowledge circles (focus groups), archival review, and other methods to get beyond use and occupancy mapping and develop more culturally informed baselines and thresholds of acceptable change. The assessment was organized across three main areas: cultural practice, subsistence rights and Mikisew stewardship. Deliverables included a final written report and a video to help reviewers understand the importance of Mikisew connections to water and land through hearing the voices of Mikisew experts and knowledge holders. Primary team members were Craig Candler, Molly Malone, and Ginger Gibson. External peer review was provided by Terre Satterfield of UBC.
