Abstract
The purpose of this report is to assist Metlakatla First Nation (MFN) in making decisions on selecting indicators for monitoring high-priority values in the economic prosperity pillar of the Metlakatla Cumulative Effects Management (CEM) Program. The research objectives are to identify the priorities in economic prosperity for MFN and indicators that are most relevant and feasible for measuring these priorities. The recommended indicators are derived from a review of 12 relevant economic prosperity frameworks, input from Metlakatla focus groups, and analysis of data collected from the 2020 Metlakatla Membership Census. Recommendations also include management strategies to improve economic prosperity outcomes and the next steps to incorporate recommended indicators to the CEM Program.
