About IKANAWTIKET

IKANAWTIKET (ee-gone-aawh-dee-get) is an initiative of the Maritime Aboriginal Peoples Council through the collaboration of the Native Council of Nova Scotia, the New Brunswick Aboriginal Peoples Council, the Native Council of PEI, Fisheries and Oceans Canada (Gulf and Scotia Fundy Region), and Environment Canada (Canadian Wildlife Service) to serve as a regional Species at Risk focal point for Aboriginal Peoples residing on their Traditional Ancestral Homelands in the Maritimes.

IKANAWTIKET will help the Councils and the Councils' community members find our preferred path through the many choices available to us in the implementation of the Species At Risk Act throughout Mi'kma'ki.


Some ways in which Ikanawtiket will achieve this is through:
  1. Informing Aboriginal Peoples about the species at risk process, the status of species, and activities related to assessing and recovering a species and its critical habitat;

  2. Educating Aboriginal Peoples about wildlife, the eco-centric world view, how human activities can and have harmed our world, and ways in which we can mitigate these harmful activities;

  3. Linking organizations and people together to help provide an open and transparent process in which Aboriginal Peoples can be directly involved;

  4. Partnering Aboriginal Peoples together with other elders, educators, program managers, recovery teams, scientists, government employees, etc.;

  5. Involving Aboriginal Peoples in assessing and recovering wildlife and its critical habitat; and

  6. Co-ordinating all of these activities to help insure that Aboriginal Peoples' input into species at risk activities are meaningful and respected.

The IKANAWTIKET Discussion List

The IKANAWTIKET Discussion List serves to provide a portal through which the Councils and the Councils' community members can receive updates and information about species at risk as soon as they become available and provide them with a means of discussing and responding to these updates.

Examples of notices and documents that will be provided are COSEWIC Calls for Bids, COSEWIC Assessment and Status Reports, Socio-Economic Impact Assessments, Regulatory Impact Analysis Statements and Orders, Recovery Strategies, Action Plans, Management Plans, Residence Descriptions, and Reports on Critical Habitat Protection.

Each of these documents has a short consultation period following its publication and the Ikanawtiket Discussion List will serve as the primary method for discussing and responding to these documents in a timely, efficient, and organized manner. Any one person subscribing to this list is not expected to read and comment on every document, but to single out those documents of interest and provide feed-back.

Subscribers are also asked to either forward notices and documents to others who may have comments or to direct those people to the Regional Facilitator so that they may be added.
