From Turtle Island/ Canada to Aotearoa/New Zealand, fishing composes an essential element of sustenance, identity, and livelihood for Indigenous peoples. Central to this livelihood is an inherent right – and related responsibility – to self-determination, over the cultural, political, and ecological relationships that compose fishing practices.
The Future of Maori and First Nations Fisheries is a film screening and transnational discussion about how Indigenous peoples are envisioning the future of their respective fisheries, against a backdrop of state-imposed management and regulation.
