Could it be different? Comparing collaboration attempts between Indigenous Knowledge Systems and Western Science

This is a summary of the project

Settler colonialism and history of treaty negotiation in the North

The particular impacts of settler colonialism on indigenous people in Canada have been documented widely [1] [2] [3] [4]. However it is important to foreground this context in any discussion of indigenous rights and access to land title. The historical and present day manifestations of settler colonialism continue to structure the relationship between indigenous people and various sites of power within Canada - including the government its agencies and, of greatest relevance to the discussion here, research institutions.[1] [2] [3] [4].

Treaty negotiation between indigenous nations and both pre and post confederate governments have been a central feature of the history of the Canada state [2] [3]. However, in spite of the key roles that these political agreements have in issues of land access and tenure throughout the country, their importance is frequently overlooked. Some scholars have argued that taking the content and original intention of treaties agreements seriously has the potential to be a route toward decolonization [5] [2]. More generally treaties also provide a useful entry point into understanding how the access of indigenous nations to their land is structured.

Treaty arrangement in Canada can be divided broadly into several types - Historic and numbered treaties both pre and post 1982 and modern day treaties. While there are many similarities between within each treaty type, it is important to remember the each individual treaty is the result of negotiation between indigenous nations and the government and are particular to the unique conditions in existence at the time that they were arranged. The majority of the land of what is now eastern and central Canada has been the site of negotiation of historic and number treaties. In contrast to this Most of British Columbia, Yukon, North West Territories and Nunavut is either land that falls under modern treaties of land that remains unceded - that is land on which there has never been a formal agreement between indigenous nations and the Canadian government regarding the occupancy and use of the land ([2] ADD LAW BOOK)
