collection

Muscowpetung Saulteaux Business Developments (MSBD) is building a ‘Traditional Knowledge Collection’ that will include interviews from Elders, Former Leadership, local artists, artisans, and traditional knowledge keepers. This information will be protected by the nation as proprietary and will be accessible to band members and the general public but will not be subject to dissemination without the express written permission of the Band Administration.

THE GOAL OF THE COLLECTION IS TO INSPIRE A CROSS-GENERATIONAL EXCHANGE OF KNOWLEDGE AND TO HOUSE A RECORD OF UNDERTAKINGS FOR POSTERITY.
MSBD and the Muscowpetung Band Administration will maintain the collection on this website as the entrusted curators. In total, the collection will include:
1. RECORDED INTERVIEWS

2. ALL PAST ELECTION RESULTS

These records will be acquired from the Government of Canada (Indigenous Services/CIRNAC) and will indicate who the past leadership of the nation was, what the vote count was, along with the dates and location of the elections.

3. Early Maps and Documents of the Muscowpetung Indian Reserve.

These records will be acquired from the Government of Canada (Indigenous Services/CIRNAC) and will indicate Traditional Knowledge Protocols with Industry

TRADITIONAL KNOWLEDGE
PROTOCOLS WITH INDUSTRY

traditional
knowledge

In some cases, as with maps and collected data (like occupational markers), a Traditional Knowledge Protocol will be required to be executed. Only information acquired through a Traditional Knowledge Protocol will be usable under the Protocol.

We ask that those major proponents working with Muscowpetung’s traditional and/or occupancy territories and lands engage the nation to trigger discussions on when and where to use our Traditional Knowledge Protocol.

Traditional Knowledge Protocol can be arranged through MSBD and will contain the following elements:

• WHAT TYPE OF  INFORMATION MAY BE COLLECTED
• THE INITIATION OF A SPECIFIC STUDY
• SHARING AND PROTECTION OF SENSITIVE INFORMATION;
• RISK IDENTIFICATION AND MITIGATION.
