Nature-based Solutions and Conservation

Siksikaitsitapi Agriculture Project

 Launched by Rural Routes to Climate Solutions (a Stettler Learning Centre initiative) in 2021, the Siksikaitsitapi Agriculture Project (SAP) is an equity, diversity and inclusion project connecting Siksikaitsitapi agricultural producers and traditional harvesters with the resources, traditional knowledge and peers to engage with and implement culturally appropriate agricultural climate solutions. The Siksikaitsitapi (‘Blackfoot Confederacy’ in the Blackfoot language) consists of Kainai, Piikani and Siksika First Nations. This second year of the project will organize and facilitate community convening (e.g., meetings, workshops, field days) for Siksikaitsitapi members to learn about agricultural climate solutions and discuss and explore where they intersect with traditional knowledge, food security and community health.
