Project Description

Gwen, a member of the Saddle Lake Cree Nation in Alberta, Canada, develops relationships between indigenous and non indigenous peoples to support better natural resource management and indigenous equity. Generating a deeper understanding of indigenous knowledge and legislative frameworks by non-indigenous peoples underlies all of Gwen’s work. She has worked with indigenous nations in the US and Canada on natural resources management and protection, including as a hydrologist for the Mescalero Apache Tribe and a Restoration Ecology Manager at the Makah Tribe, and Natural Resources Manager for the Okanagan Nation. Gwen started her consulting firm in 2010 and supports municipal and provincial governments, non-profits, universities, and the corporate sector on indigenous relations and engagement management.  Gwen has a Master of Science in Renewable Resources from the University of Alberta, in Alberta, Canada.
