"Cultural tourism, Aboriginal cultural tourism and importance of product authenticity are examined. The paper provides a case narrative of Aboriginal cultural tourism involving five First Nations communities on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada. It discusses the role of Cape Breton University, the island’s only university, as a linking-pin and neutral venue for local Aboriginal leaders, non-Aboriginal government development agencies and mainstream tourist operators to discuss a long-term unified strategy for Aboriginal cultural tourism development in this region."
"EFWC research is guided by knowledge from the elders and the need to better understand the status of traditionally harvested species. Elders and FSC (Food, Social and Ceremonial) fish harvesters are on the front lines and are often witness to environmental changes (e.g., changes in ice thickness, amount of precipitation), changes in abundance and distribution patterns (e.g., absence of herring spawning in areas that were once known to be productive)."
