Tsilhqot'in Solutions to COVID-19; Indigenous Solutions to COVID-19 and Recognition in Canadian Law

COVID-19 Research Area(s): Politics, Governance & Law

This project will document the COVID-19 response measures being implemented by the Tsilhqot'in Nation - an Indigenous Nation comprised of six reserve communities spread throughout a large traditional territory in west-central British Columbia. Through interviews with decision-makers, it will document the Nation's novel and culturally-informed approaches to COVID-19 response. It will also identify the ways in which the Canadian and BC governments - through law, legislation, and on-the-ground service delivery - fail to recognize and support these approaches.
