Compensation for Discrimination: Canada says one thing, does another – APTN News

October 15, 2019 Remembrance ceremonies for murdered and missing Indigenous women and girls happened across the country on Oct. 4, 2019 and Canada marked the occasion by filing a judicial review of a Canadian Human Rights Tribunal ruling ordering it to pay maximum damages to the First Nations children and families affected by its ongoing “wilful and reckless” discrimination. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Minister of Indigenous Services Seamus O’Regan assured an outraged public that they were for compensation, but “just needed more time” to “get it right.” This sounds good on principle, but none of these statements are supported by Canada’s actions, namely their positions on compensation or their appeal applications. As a quick refresher, ...

Inspiring next generation of Indigenous health-care professionals – UM Today

October 15, 2019 — Maximus Sandberg stood in the middle of the Pinaymootang School gym holding a stack of pamphlets and papers he planned to take home and read. The Grade 12 student had just visited the 10 booths that were part of the health-care professions career fair held on Pinaymootang First Nation on September 24. The job fair opened his eyes. He was thinking about entering the trades, but after visiting the booths, a career in health care was on his mind. “I really just thought there were nurses and doctors and therapists, but actually within those areas there are more branches where people are focused on one specialty, which is pretty interesting,” he said.

Simon Fraser U: New study on human-clam relationships informs modern marine resource management

A new study on the long-term relationship between humans and clams in B.C.’s Salish Sea is helping to inform modern marine resource management. Researchers from Simon Fraser University and the Hakai Institute have found that since European contact, the combination of beach siltation from industrial logging and the cessation of ancient Indigenous management practices has resulted in small, slow-growing clams similar to those from early post-glacial times. Yet more than 3,500 years ago, clam gardens—intertidal rock-walled terraces built by Indigenous communities—boosted clam production. Researchers say these findings have significant implications for how we manage clam populations today. The study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), is ...
