GWF Pillar 3
This project works with two distinct communities, Six Nations of the Grand River (Ontario) and Lubicon Cree Nation of Little Buffalo (northern Alberta), to capture water challenges in Indigenous communities. The project uses an innovative research framework informed by the Indigenous partners to facilitate sharing and integration of contemporary science and Indigenous and Local Knowledge. Building capacity to monitor source waters with environmental sensors, we investigate ecosystem health and the causes of health issues related to contaminated water, design inclusive poly-centric decision-making models for water governance, and develop place-based sustainable solutions.
The co-creation of sensors, data analysis and culturally relevant tools will build long-term and sustained community capacity to address current and future uncertainties in water quality. Many other Indigenous communities across Canada will stand to benefit from the collaborative methodologies and pedagogies of integrating western and Indigenous knowledge, experience, tools and expertise gained from this project.
