Pimachiowin Aki Guardians Network: Guardians have been part of Pimachiowin Aki forever. The Anishinaabe tradition of Ji-ganawendamang Gidakiiminaan – keeping the land – is what Guardians do. This year, we have seen significant and measurable progress in our Guardians’ work to observe, record and report on the cultural landscape and ecosystem health of Pimachiowin Aki. Thank you to the Indigenous Guardians Joint Working Group and Environment and Climate Change Canada for supporting our Network – the only World Heritage Site chosen in Canada for the pilot project in 2018-19.
