In early September, IFKN Steering Committee members, Althea Walker, Amy Juan, and Shawna Larson and Research Coordination Team members Noor Johnson and Mary Beth Jäger attended the third Festival of Northern Fishing Traditions in Tornio, Finland. The Snowchange Cooperative and regional partners are hosting this international festival along with a pre-event site visit to Näätämö River co-management areas in Sevettijärvi, Finland in Skolt Sámi territory. Attending IFKN members gave a short presentation about the IFKN. Below are a few pictures from their trip along with more stories coming in Our Food and Knowledge Stories.
