Pacific herring are essential to the way of life of First Nations and Indigenous communities along the coast of British Columbia and Alaska. As government entities manage herring for commercial production and profit, indigenous elders have witnessed the depletion of sustainable abundance.

We invite you to join representatives from the Tlingit and Heiltsuk Nations, as well as experts in tribal law and natural resource management from Canada and the United States, for a discussion on the state of the herring fisheries of the Peaceful and on what can be learned and shared across the border. This event is organized by the Center for Canadian Studies and Jackson School of International Studies.
