Decolonizing the Shoreline


June 22nd 12:00 PM to 1:15 PM
Vancouver, British Columbia

A dialogue about the significant and recent initiatives Coastal First Nations have championed for shoreline health.

 

About this event

Indigenous knowledge has defined and protected the health of our coastal waters since time immemorial, and today re-establishment is needed to navigate the conversations and ideas around adaptation to sea level rise. This decolonized approach is at the centre of the City of Vancouver’s Sea2City Design Challenge (Sea2City), which is exploring solutions for urban development and ecological revitalization in the False Creek floodplain. “Decolonizing the Shoreline” brings Chief Dr. Frank Brown, Christine Smith-Martin, Joanne Nelson, and Sea2City Cultural Advisor Cory Douglas together in dialogue regarding the significant and recent initiatives Coastal First Nations have championed for shoreline health and provide insights for the City of Vancouver to learn through Sea2City.Highlights from the upcoming Sacred Journey exhibition at Science World on July 15, 2022 will be shared, we will hear about the success of the Indigenous Guardians across the country, and discuss why the Fisheries Resources Reconciliation Agreement is so ground-breaking. Ginger Gosnell-Myers will moderate as we explore these efforts and how it impacts shoreline planning.
