Indigenous Resources

The Athabasca Watershed Council recognizes that our watershed is located on Treaty 6, Treaty 8, and Treaty 10 territories. Because of this, we want to provide resources that benefit indigenous communities and those alike. 

The Centre for Indigenous Environmental Resources is a non-profit charitable organization working in partnership with Indigenous nations to support Indigenous communities and protect lands and waters. 

Indigenous Waters is an organization working for Indigenous water governance. They advocate for the inherent human right to water and the protection of Indigenous Peoples’ rights, stewardship, and responsibilities for water.
