Abstract
On September 19-21 2014, the Tlicho Government, the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre and the Canadian Polar Commission hosted a multi-event symposium called Ilàà Kati to advance the understanding and uses of Traditional Knowledge. Dr. George Nicholas and the other presenters offered insights into the potential of traditional Aboriginal knowledge with presentations from a wide range of perspectives. The purpose of the symposium was to broaden the appreciation of TK’s relevance in contemporary society, including government and industry, furthering the reconciliation of TK and Western ways of knowing and building partnerships aimed at increasing the evidence-based application of traditional knowledge.
