Gonèk’e: Our Land – Webinar Series on Modern Treaty Implementation

(Tlicho Pronunciation: Gone-eh’-kay)(Translation: Our Land)

Modern treaties are difficult to negotiate, and are just as challenging to implement. The Modern Treaty Implementation Research Project is hosting a webinar series over the next six months called “Gonèk’e: Our Land” highlighting research being done associated with the project, as well as providing a platform for Indigenous experts and practitioners to highlight their work and knowledge.

Join us June 28, 2021, at 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm MST for the first in a series of five webinars in 2021 exploring the themes behind the Modern Treaty Implementation Research Project. The project brings together researchers from across Canada who will work alongside land claim practitioners from members of the Land Claims Agreements Coalition, on a national, six-year $2.5 million SSHRC Partnership Grant that aims to conduct research with Indigenous governments, Indigenous communities, and other policy makers on modern treaty implementation. The project is producing diverse and nuanced understandings of modern treaty implementation, acting as a powerful and transformative basis for critiquing and innovating treaty implementation approaches.

The webinar series will be of primary interest to land claims practitioners and beneficiaries, government policymakers and administrators, academics, and citizens interested in learning more about current issues and innovations in treaty implementation.
