ABOUT US

BEGINNING

CERRI was established by the Cree Nation of Chisasibi in February 3, 2016 following the recommendation of the Migratory Bird Habitat Task Force:

‘’Establishment of a community-based research center. The center would organize and oversee applied research… It could also serve as a place where TEK [Traditional Ecological Knowledge] can be stored and accessed.’’

APPROACH

CERRI is a community-led and community-driven organization. Community members are thoroughly engaged in identifying key issues, generating ideas, and building solutions. Research projects are defined by land users and community members. 

 

Traditional knowledge from elders and community members is one our pillars of understanding the environment.

PROJECTS

CERRI conducts various research projects following a "two-eyed seeing" paradigm, meaning, integrating western research methods with Cree Traditional Ecological Knowledge.
