Haida law of gina ‘waadluxan gud ad kwaagiida and Indigenous rights in conservation finance

Our Canadian partner, the Canada Climate Law Initiative, has produced a paper on ‘Haida law of gina ‘waadluxan gud ad kwaagiida and Indigenous rights in conservation finance’.

Dr. Janis Sarra and Terri-Lynn Williams-Davidson (White Raven Law Corporation) have produced a legal analysis of biodiversity conservation through the legal framework of the Haida law of gina ‘waadluxan gud ad kwaagiida, which translates as ‘interconnectedness’, recognizing that everything depends on everything else. In the Haida world view, the natural, human, and supernatural worlds are deeply interconnected and proper management considers all of these realms; in this respect, it is essential for companies and investors to consider the impacts of their activities on Indigenous Peoples, laws, and rights.
