The Lil’wat Nation is working to foster community food security by restoring and activating Indigenous knowledge around traditional food systems. Our project examines ‘Ecosystem Services’ approaches as one way to support local food security while also protecting culturally-important environmental services. Led by a Lil’wat Food Committee, this project will engage community members in community planning and visioning exercises that evaluate what future paths for environmental stewardship are the highest priority. We will determine best practices for how farmers, ranchers, food harvesters and collectors can be compensated for protecting ecological values and services, and work to create spatial data to advise stewardship programming for lands within Lil’wat Traditional Territories.
