USask SENS collaborate with Mistawasis Nêhiyawak 

March 25, 2020

Mistawasis Nêhiyawak and the University of Saskatchewan’s School of Environment and Sustainability have been collaborating on a mapping project that includes flood projections for the community. “In past years, while we were dealing with flooding on a daily basis, we may have taken actions that impact present or future water use and quality,” said Anthony Johnston, SENS Indigenous mentor and a spokesperson for Mistawasis Nêhiyawak. “Now we can only wait and see if we did more harm with our quick solution. We might have decided differently if we were able to use our LiDAR data earlier.” USask notes that the collaboration provided an opportunity for SENS students to learn first-hand about reconciliation through shared science, and that the two parties have planned new projects for the future.   USask   (SK)
