Knowledge Pluralism in First Nations’ Salmon Management
There is growing interest in the “integration” of knowledge and values held by Indigenous peoples with Western science into natural resource governance and management. However, poorly conducted integration efforts can risk harming Indigenous communities and reifying colonial legacies.
Knowledge Pluralism in First Nations’ Salmon Management, co-authored by FishWIKS team members Saul Milne, Grant Murray, and Terry Dorward, and published in Frontiers in Marine Science, reports on research done on the role of indigenous and scientific knowledges in the management of coho salmon on the west coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia in a governance context featuring contested authority among First Nations and the government of Canada.
