  1. Traditional Ecological Knowledge

  2. Tl’azat’en First Nation’s understanding of plants, animals and natural occurrences in their forest environment • Knowledge that is passed down from generation to generation as tradition in the form of stories, songs, cultural beliefs, rituals, and community laws

  3. What is the knowledge about? Valuable data on: • Local climate and resources • Biotic and abiotic characteristics • Animal and plant life cycles • Soil types • Plant and animal species • Practices that enhance the productivity and health of the ecosystem

  4. In BC… • Provincial and federal government, the scientific community and Aboriginal representatives are working together to develop land use and restoration plans in part of the province

  5. Example • Spring burning of prairie grasslands by the Cree in Northern Alberta • This is controlled burning done to re-new grassland ecosystems • Recycles nutrients and increases plant growth • Creates more diversity in the understory of a forest • Reduces forest litter and opens the canopy allowing plants that require more sunlight to grow

  6. Without burning • Increases forest litter • Large number of dead or diseased trees
