Last week I attended a workshop for a project both Chantelle and I are involved with. A SHARED Future - is a CIHR-funded project led by Heather Castleden and Diana Lewis and includes over 60 stakeholders including several Indigenous Scholars and community members. We were hosted by the T’Sou-ke Nation on the west coast and learned about their solar-based renewable energy initiatives (they also grow wasabi as a cash crop) amid sessions that allowed the team members to get to know each other and scope the project moving forward. A fantastic, energizing - and at times emotional - gathering. Learning much about doing research with Indigenous communities. Community-based wind energy is only one of many projects that will be involved including 40+ turbine Mesgi’g Ugju’s’n wind project.
