All Our Relations: Nipissing First Nation and Sovereign Fishing Practices
February 6 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Nicole Latulippe is an Assistant Professor in the departments of Human Geography and Physical and Environmental Sciences at the University of Toronto Scarborough. She has also worked for the Anishinabek Nation on Ipperwash implementation and as a community-based researcher. Her research and teaching interests include the treaty relationship; Indigenous, cross-cultural, and place-based research methodologies; Indigenous geographies; and environmental knowledge, governance, justice and law. Nicole is a treaty person. Her family is French-Canadian from Nipissing and unceded Algonquin territories and she has Anishinaabe ancestry from the Ottawa and Mattagami River areas.
In this talk, Nicole will discuss her community-based research with Nipissing First Nation (NFN); specifically, the responsibilities underpinning community members’ sovereign fishing practices and how NFN has managed to maintain relations with Lake Nipissing, a hotly contested ‘resource’.
“All Our Relations” is a winter talk series which shares stories and insights about water and decolonial water governance from the perspectives of other water beings.
