The Mikisew Cree First Nation Community Based Monitoring Program started in 2008. It is currently conducting monitoring weekly on a year-round basis, looking at water quality and quantity as well as winter and climate change variables. We use a combined Indigenous knowledge and western science approach. We use our monitoring data to advocate for our treaty and Aboriginal rights.
