Larry McDermott

Policy Press

This chapter talks about Larry McDermott's work, which focuses on environmental stewardship and 'conservation' that includes engaging with Indigenous law and the commitments made in treaties between Indigenous nations and settler governments. It analyzes how Indigenous peoples factor into community wellbeing on a local level, through honouring all of life, all of creation, and the fact that everything is connected. It also highlights international success and cooperation that have an impact on the health and wellbeing of Indigenous peoples locally. The chapter elaborates the socialization and culture for seniors, as the ability to get together, have fun, and share culture in a social atmosphere is so important. It mentions Plenty Canada, which provided a venue for the school board to do land-based learning through iLead, an Indigenous land-based learning program, in May 2020.
