Under the terms of the Land Claims Agreement of 2005, the Inuit government of Nunatsiavut may be required to provide Inuit Domestic Harvest Levels (IDHLs) or estimates of what level of resource harvesting on a species-by-species basis is required to protect and perpetuate traditional life styles and cultural values.

Year of publication:

"This paper explores the complex social, economic, and political interplay that takes place between subsistence and wage economies, sharing and reciprocity, and regulatory regimes that now mediate Aboriginal community access to wildlife resources. By focusing on subsistence, with its equally important social and economic attributes, this article argues that the harvesting, processing, and distribution of wild foods and resources continues to be a central component of Canada's northern social economy.

The Paq'tenkek Mi'kmaq and Ka't (American Eel): A Case Study of Cultural Relations, Meanings, and Prospects [Canadian Journal of Native Studies, CJNS]

Publisher: 
Canadian Journal of Native Studies (CJNS)
Year of publication: 
2004

"The Mi'kmaq have a deep and rich relationship with Ka't (American eel - Anguilla rostrata). While the Mi'kmaq continue to harvest Ka't for food, their relations with and use of eel also embody important cultural meanings and practices. Ka't occupies a notable place within many ceremonial settings, is used for medicinal purposes and, as a consequence of the ways in which Ka't is shared, is central to traditional relations of reciprocity. Implications for the revitalization and empowerment of Indigenous cultures are drawn from the lessons evident in this case study."
