Restoration & Propagation of Native Plants on W̱SÁNEĆ territory
with Judith Lyn Arney

Judith will share her experience using an ethnoecological approach to restoration and native plant propagation in W̱SÁNEĆ territory. Her restoration projects include SṈIDȻEȽ (Tod Inlet), ȾIX̱EṈ (Cordova Spit), and ȾIXEL (Maber Flats), all sacred places for W̱SÁNEĆ peoples. She will introduce us to her work at the PEPÁḴEṈ HÁUTW̱ Native Plant Nursery and open up a discussion about respectful relations with First Nations and cultural knowledge. Judith will also highlight traditional food and medicines that dwell in W̱SÁNEĆ territory and emphasize the role of traditional food ecosystems in the larger dialogue around regional food security.
