HQP Summer Travel Series: Hannah
In our 4th round of summer blog posts, Hannah is telling us about a workshop in Landscape 6 with their indigenous collaborators. Hannah is a PhD candidate at Simon Fraser University under the supervision of Anne Salomon.
Hannah alongside the rest of the team of landscape 6, organised a workshop in British Columbia with Indigenous Collaborators and their knowledge holders. The focus was on centring L6’s indigenous collaborators and their knowledge holders, so only a few scientists were invited to bear witness and lead some discussions. A safe space was created in which the Hereditary chiefs discussed how they envision their future. The relationship of sea otters-shellfish-people-kelp was debated, and how the desired future can be achieved while upholding cultural protocol. Hannah reflects, that she and the other invited scientists learned a lot, especially how to decolonise their methods and how to let go of the rigorous academic process.
