Gonèk’e: Our Land – Webinar Series on Modern Treaty Implementation
Tlicho Pronunciation: Gone-eh’-kay; Translation: Our Land
Research Theme: All (Project Lead and Management)
Modern treaties are difficult to negotiate, and are just as challenging to implement. The Modern Treaty Implementation Research Project is hosting a webinar series called “Gonèk’e: Our Land” highlighting research being done associated with the project, as well as providing a platform for Indigenous experts and practitioners to highlight their work and knowledge.
The project brings together researchers from across Canada who will work alongside land claim practitioners from members of the Land Claims Agreements Coalition, on a national, six-year $2.5 million SSHRC Partnership Grant that aims to conduct research with Indigenous governments, Indigenous communities, and other policymakers on modern treaty implementation. The project is producing diverse and nuanced understandings of modern treaty implementation, acting as a powerful and transformative basis for critiquing and innovating treaty implementation approaches.
The webinar series will be of primary interest to land claims practitioners and beneficiaries, government policymakers and administrators, academics, and citizens interested in learning more about current issues and innovations in treaty implementation.
