Marc G. Stevenson. Marc Stevenson has for over 20 years worked with Aboriginal groups, universities, governments, NGOs, and industrial proponents on a broad range of issues affecting Aboriginal communities across Canada. With degrees in anthropology and archaeology, he has addressed many of the environmental, social, political, economic and cultural issues and challenges facing Canada's First Nations, Inuit, and Metis peoples. His work among the Inuit in the 1980s led to research outlining the structure of Inuit social organization. More recently, his research interests have shifted towards issues of traditional ecological knowledge, co-management, economic development, social and environmental impact assessment, and Indigenous rights. Marc Stevenson has developed considerable expertise in and knowledge about the linkages among environment, society, and economy in Aboriginal communities. He is particularly noted for his research on traditional knowledge, indigenous management systems, co-management, traditional economy and sustainable development.
