Background: This resource highlights the colonial legacies of mainstream conservation science and nature preservation, and introduces some of the terminology, practices and knowledge frameworks of Indigenous peoples particularly in the region of the Pacific Northwest (BC) and is directed toward Biogeography students, but offers only an introduction, that may be expanded upon with, eg, related literature and the many Indigenous led conservation efforts documented therein.
