    channel: Isuma News

    UINR–Unama’ki Institute of Natural Resources– is releasing two new books on the importance of moose to the Mi’kmaq people at Membertou’s Heritage Park on Tuesday May 27 at 11:00 am.

    “Tiam:This is our Story” is a children’s book written in English and Mi’kmaq that tells the story of moose in Unama’ki from the appearance of the first “spirit” moose to the present day.

    Illustrated by Dozay and written by UINR’s Lisa Young and Clifford Paul, it is both entertaining and educational.

    Funding was provided by Mi’kmaq–Nova Scotia–Canada Tripartite Forum’s Fund for Social and Economic Change.

    “Tiam: Mi’kmaq Ecological Knowledge–Moose in Unama’ki” gathers traditional knowledge of moose and its importance to the culture and survival of Mi’kmaq people now and through the ages.

    It also looks at the work of the Moose Working Group who have developed voluntary guidelines for Mi'kmaq moose harvesting.

    Written by Nadine Lefort with Clifford Paul, Ernest Johnson and Charlie Dennis, the book features an illustrated look at every part of the moose that is traditionally used by the Mi’kmaq people, “The Whole Moose.”

    Funding was provided by Nova Scotia Department of Aboriginal Affairs. Parks Canada, andMi’kmaq–Nova Scotia–Canada Tripartite Forum’s Fund for Social and Economic Change.

    The book release will feature short readings in Mi’kmaq and English. Free copies of the books will be available (one per person) and there will be door prizes and snacks available.

    UINR’s Executive Director explains why moose are so important to the organization, “For many years UINR has worked closely with groups like Parks Canada, Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources,and the Assembly of Nova Scotia Mi’kmaq Chiefs on a moose management initiative that brings Mi’kmaq, Canadian, and Provincial governments together on co-management.

    An important part of this initiative has been educating Nova Scotians and our Mi’kmaq communities on Mi’kmaq rights and responsibilities.

    These booklets help educate children and adults on the cultural importance of moose to the Mi’kmaq people and the important role our traditional ways of management play in ensuring moose will be there to benefit all Nova Scotians for generations to come.”UINR is Cape Breton’s Mi’kmaq voice on natural resources and the environment.

    Forestry, marine science research, species management, traditional Mi’kmaq knowledge, water quality monitoring, and environmental partnerships are among the organization’s responsibilities.

    Representing the five Mi’kmaq communities in Unama’ki–(Eskasoni, Membertou, Potlotek, Wagmatcook and We’koqma’q) on natural resources issues, UINR contributes to an understanding and protection of Unama’ki’s ecosystem through research, monitoring, education, and management.

    By integrating netukulimk (traditional Mi’kmaq management) with traditional and conventional ways of understanding, known as Two-Eyed Seeing, UINR takes the lead on best-management practices in Unama’ki.

  • Traditional Knowledge Tool Kit

    Tradtional Knowlege & Climate Science Toolkit

    Indigenous communities have long, multi-generational histories of interaction with the environment that include coping with variability, uncertainty and change.

    However, climate-induced impacts on their territories and communities are anticipated to be both early and severe due to their location in vulnerable habitats, including small islands, high altitude zones, desert margins and the circumpolar Arctic.

    Climate change poses a direct threat to many indigenous societies due to their continuing reliance upon resource-based livelihoods. At the same time, resilience in the face of a changing environment is embedded in indigenous knowledge and know-how, diversified resources and livelihoods, social institutions and networks, and cultural values and attitudes.

    Attentiveness to environmental variability, shifts and trends is an integral part of indigenous ways of life. Community-based and local knowledge may offer valuable insights on climate-induced changes, and complement broader-scale scientific research with local precision and nuance.

    Indigenous societies have elaborated coping strategies to deal with unstable environments, and in some cases, are already actively adapting to early climate change impacts. While the transformations due to climate change are expected to be unprecedented, indigenous knowledge and coping strategies provide a crucial foundation for community-based adaptation measures.

    This toolkit provides access to articles and various other resources that will assist indigenous peoples, local communities, policymakers and other stakeholders in accessing research on climate change adaptation and mitigation.
