About the Edition

This study was undertaken in collaboration with the Huu-ay-aht First Nation (HFN) of Vancouver Island"s West Coast in an attempt to better understand the role of HFN women and their Indigenous knowledge in the planning and management of a recently developed community forest initiative, which is being undertaken by the HFN in partnership with the neighboring non-Native community of Bamfield. The Bamfield Huu-ay-aht Community Forest (BHCF) presents a series of unique cultural and economic opportunities for HFN women, whose extensive forest-related Indigenous knowledge could facilitate the successful harvesting of various Non-Timber Forest Products (NTFPs) within the BHCF. However, HFN women have encountered a number of barriers to their meaningful participation in the BHCF, such that their involvement at present is severely limited. A case study approach is used to assess these opportunities and barriers, and to determine the extent to which they are related to women"s empowerment within the community.

Aboriginal Forestry is a recent development in the forestry industry of British Columbia. Due largely to a series of forestry-related court cases, Aboriginal rights and title are being increasingly recognized and defined. There have been significant forest tenure reforms and policy amendments that have enabled First Nations to play a larger role in forest land use planning. Author: Justin Lenze. Aboriginal Peoples and Forest Lands in Canada brings together the diverse perspectives of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal scholars to address the political, cultural, environmental, and economic implications of forest use. This book discusses the need for professionals working in forestry and conservation to understand the context of Aboriginal participation in resource management.
