Askiy Nanakacihtakewin Stewardship Program

Askiy Nankacihtakewin means, “to watch out and take care of the lands, waters, wildlife, plants, and people of the land”

YFFN chose the term “stewardship” for it’s monitoring program, as this word is better aligned with Ininniw perspectives on caring for Askiy. The program is designed to incorporate traditional elements in understanding the effects of the Keeyask Project on YFFN’s members and their traditional lands.
