Research Network on Indigenous SSF

As a result of a sharing circle workshop held as part of the 2nd SSF Congress in Merida, Mexico in September, 2014, a network was formed for researchers working on Indigenous SSF themes. Read about the workshop

The network consists of regular Skype sessions, each with a presentation of some research on Indigenous SSF by a network member.

To date there have been three presentations:

  • A presentation by Miguel Gonzales at York University, “Indigenous Territorial Rights and Aquatic Resources in Latin America: Recognition, Adaptation and Challenges of Resource-based Economies” on Mar. 17, 2015-08-06

  • A report by Sherry Pictou and Minvera Arce-Ibarra on the User Rights Conference in Siem Reap, Cambodia, from an Indigenous research perspective

  • A presentation by Yoshitaka Ota of UBC on the Indigenous Small-Scale Fisheries Database Project
