As part of the North American TEK Atlas project, the present guide is a companion to the Inventory of CEC initiatives that have included Indigenous engagement. This inventory spans the entire history of CEC activities, from 1995 to December 2018. It involved keyword-based research from the CEC website and publication archives as well as discussions with CEC Secretariat staff to identify most initiatives.
Classified under five different categories (Event/Public Consultation, Grant, Program/Project, Publication/Report, and Submission), nearly 150 initiatives were identified since the creation of the CEC. From all of these initiatives, 470 different Indigenous representatives/groups/communities/associations were identified from Canada (36%), Mexico (41.5%), the United States (22%), as well as binational ones from Canada/United States (0.5%).>
