I envision a future that brings justice and resolves the issue of the exploitation of the land of Indigenous and coastal communities for profit and economic gain. I feel after discussing about these issues in class that it is extremely unjust and disappointing that the government would make these decisions (such as reintroducing sea otters, controlling fishing seasons, etc.) without consulting the original owners of these lands and disrespecting their cultures and traditional practices. The connection that these local community owners have with their land is importantly ingrained in their traditions and the government and these larger institutions and businesses need to be aware of that. It is intrusive and destructive towards the traditional practices these cultures have as they continue to exploit the nature and natural resources of their land for business. I believe in the rights of Indigenous and coastal communities to be able to practice their traditions and thrive on their land without government obstruction. I believe that to resolve these issues, the government definitely needs to recognize and consult Indigenous and coastal communities before making these decisions, respect and learn about their cultural practices and consider these before making decisions regarding the usage of their lands and resources. In terms of the distribution issue, the government should make sure to compensate and give back to the local communities that they're taking resources from. I hope to see a future that can allow Indigenous and coastal communities to have their land back to continue their traditions and practices without governments and businesses obstructing them.
