For the third installment of the GWI’s Water Conversations series, we heard from Karen Lawford, Aboriginal midwife and instructor of Indigenous and Canadian Studies at Carleton University, on the topic of water, indigenous women’s health, and environmental violence in Canada.
Dr. Lawford hosted an open-ended discussion, inviting attendees to express their opinions and interpretations. In lieu of a talk summary, we would like to invite you to explore the following resources to learn more on the subjects discussed during her presentation.
International declarations and conventions on the right to water, and the rights of Indigenous peoples
Publications on Indigenous Maternal and Child Health in Canada
Resources on Canada’s Water Advisory System
Canadian Water Issues in the News
Join us in January for the next installment of Water Conversations, where we will be hearing from Dr. Steven Cooke on the state of freshwater fish and fisheries, why they matter, and what we can do to preserve them for the future.
