Dr. Teresa Ryan draws from her ancestral Tsimtian heritage and her work as a fisheries scientist and natural resource conservation expert. Motivated by the way her forefathers interacted with the environment, Dr. Ryan demonstrates how the synergistic Aboriginal knowledge of cyclic resource production and variability can help promote the sustainable use of fishing resources today.
Though her given name today is Teresa Ryan, this respected marine scientist was born under a different name: Sm’hayetsk. A member of the Tsimtian First Nations group, Dr. Ryan is a Postdoctoral Teaching and Research Fellow, Department of Forest and Conservation Sciences, Faculty of Forestry, University of British Columbia. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
