The FISHES project is being featured in IAGLR’s 64th Conference on Great Lakes Research this week (May 17-21, 2021).

Délı̨nę community research partner and Elder’s Council representative, Walter Bezha, is co-presenting with Grace Martin on the FISHES project in Sahtú as part of the session on bridging knowledge systems between Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities.

The theme of the conference this year is “Bridging: Knowledges • Seven Generations • Land to Lake“. “This theme evokes our goal of connection. Today we see an urgent need for people to connect across divides of race, culture, and political viewpoint, as well as across scientific disciplines and levels of scientific literacy.”
