The Understanding Traditional Use Studies: Aboriginal Knowledge and Traditions Website is made possible through a partnership between the Heritage Community Foundation, Alberta Aboriginal Relations, Government of Alberta, and Traditional Use Studies communities. The website is part of the Alberta Online Encyclopedia - www.albertasource.ca.
The website explains the TUS process and showcases materials from existing Studies with the permission of participating Aboriginal communities. The Website makes the TUS process and findings accessible to Aboriginal Peoples and the general public for the purposes of formal education and public engagement.
