Honouring Traditional Knowledge - APCFNC Elders' Project   November 01, 2011

The Elders' Eight Recommendations and Elders' Project Report are now available for the research project undertaken by the Atlantic Aboriginal Economic Development Integrated Research Program (AAEDIRP) and the Atlantic Policy Congress of First Nations Chiefs (APCFNC).  The project, which ran from 2009 – 2011, brought together 23 Mi’kmaq, Wolastoqiyik, Innu and Inuit Elders under the theme “Honouring Traditional Knowledge”.  The Elders' Recommendations were highlighted at the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada's National Atlantic Event in Halifax in October 2011 within Circle Five (Knowledge and Rights) and Circle Six (Knowledge and Health and Wellness).
