Indigenous peoples' land rights in Canada have been disputed in past years -- both on the ground and in the courts. How might ethnoecology and ethnobotany help situate Indigenous land use and advance reconciliation in this country? Organized by 2015 fellow and ethnobotanist Nancy Turner at the University of Victoria from 2 to 5 May 2017, a symposium on this subject allowed participants to discuss new directions for land and resource planning and decision-making in British Columbia, across Canada and beyond. The video is now available online.
