Skownan - Dreaming the Land

January 16, 2002
This video features members of Skownan First Nation sharing their dreams for the future of their lands and community. It captures some of the highlights of a unique project shared between Skownan first Nation and the International Institute for Sustainable Development. Together, they used an innovative process called Appreciative Inquiry to learn how Aboriginal people value the lands around them, and how this information can be incorporated into provincial land-use and resource management planning. Through Appreciative Inquiry, local people have built a shared vision for their future based on community strengths and have developed strategies for turning this vision into reality.
