Whitefeather Forest Initiative


Like any other valuable body of knowledge, the Indigenous Knowledge of Pikangikum embodies its own research tradition. From ancient times to the present, research has supported the development of knowledge among Pikangikum people. It is the discovered knowledge of the forest that made the birch bark canoe possible. It is the discovered knowledge of the forest that has given us our Ojibway medicines.

The Whitefeather Forest Management Corporation initiates and undertakes applied research, bringing together our research tradition with that of our partners, to support planning in the areas of stewardship and enterprise development. We also attend conferences to present and discuss ideas of forest stewardship and cross-cultural dialogue and cooperation.

In addition, Pikangikum First Nation has entered into a Research Co-operative agreement with various educational institutions wishing to undertake research related to the Forest and the Whitefeather Forest Initiative.
