In the spirit of Truth and Reconciliation in Canada and our commitment to creating dialogue, this year, one of the questions the BanffŽ Mountain Book and Film Festival is exploring is how can Indigenous wisdom inspire our group of advocates to become allies in shaping a new conversation of land use. In response to this call, we have designed a two-day Indigenous Leaders' Dialogue to explore how Indigenous wisdom can frame land management and the human impacts to land. We invite you to share with us in this new type of conversation, one that we acknowledge has existed for many generations before us.

Global Wisdom in Land Management:
Indigenous leaders from Canada and New Zealand will provide examples of Indigenous sources of law and how this inherent wisdom and world view impacts connections to land. This conversation will explore from an Indigenous perspective, thoughts and ideas on the power of place and oŽffer recreationalists the opportunity to review and reconsider their own relationship to the land.
