Bringing Indigenous Knowledge to Forest Conservation
June 9 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 pm
On June 4 at 9 am, Hunter Corbiere, an Indigenous Forestry Consultant, will present Two-Eyed Seeing: understanding the relationship between Western based knowledge and traditional knowledge and how language and tradition will shape seeing science in a spiritual way.
She will speak at the annual general meeting of the Quinte chapter of the Ontario Woodlot Association.
“With learning from an Indigenous perspective and a Western eye, each can learn from the other, and we can involve more Indigenous knowledge in our forest management,” said Corbiere.
Hunter Corbiere worked at Georgian Bay Islands National Park for two years; last summer as a member of the resource conservation team. She is a recent forest technician graduate of Sir Sandford Fleming College.
In the afternoon, the group will travel a few km north to Yearwood’s Pure 62 Local, where the Yearwood family, and fellow Quinte members, will be joined by Hunter Corbiere and Peter Kuitenbrouwer (forester and Managed Forest Tax Incentive Program planner) for a guided walk through the Yearwood’s woodland.
