Nadia Joe’s story is only one strand woven into the tapestry of her family’s story. She recently returned home to the Champagne & Aishihik First Nation in Haines Junction, Yukon to spend more time with her Elders on the land: listening, watching, learning. Nadia’s Fellowship paper discusses sustainable management of water resources. It combines scientific and traditional knowledge and approaches to develop policy measures for water management that provide for water’s sustainable use while maintaining its natural condition – a provision of the Champagne & Aishihik First Nations final agreement.
