Angus Toulouse, CEO of Mamaweswen The North Shore Tribal Council discusses the Sagamok experience and project outcomes.
What do Excellent maps look like?
They look like Sagamok’s maps. In 2013 our Project Research Director led a team that interviewed 115 Sagamok members. Those member carefully mapped 23,000 sites where they had done trapping, fishing, hunting, gathering and stayed out on the land.
Below is a sample map biography – what one Sagamok member mapped during his interview. Also shown is a map displaying all 23,000 of the First Nations’ recorded sites.
