WATER STEWARDSHIP FORUM 2: Using Indigenous Knowledge to Inform Watershed Management Planning
The Okanagan Nation Alliance (ONA) is exploring opportunities to develop and lead new approaches that are based on Syilx (Okanagan) knowledge. ONA developed a methodology to apply Syilx knowledge to both existing, and new, Syilx-led watershed planning processes. The methodology was developed through a literature review and case studies and several Syilx knowledge keeper workshops.
The core premise of the methodology, is that a strong foundation of Syilx knowledge is the starting point for shaping watershed planning processes that align with Syilx water laws, principles, and practices; for assertion and practice of our Syilx title, rights, and authority.
