    We are honoured to have Dr. Sm’hayetsk Teresa Ryan as a speaker this evening.  Dr. Ryan is a Research Associate and Sessional Lecturer in Forest and Conservation Sciences at UBC Vancouver. She examined colonial dispossession of Aboriginal lands and trade for her PhD dissertation. She explored Ancestral ecological-social institution linkages in terms that better portray an Aboriginal viewpoint, and the connection of these complex adaptive systems to heterogeneous mosaic landscapes. She demonstrated how thousands of years of sustainable use based on Ancestral knowledge of cyclic resource production and variability was an intuitive component of Aboriginal stewardship. Her current Salmon-forest research in the lab of Professor Suzanne Simard investigates the potential to restore salmon abundance by using ancient Aboriginal salmon fishing technology and strategies.
