The purpose of this report is to summarize literature reporting on major social, economic, health and cultural impacts that may be experienced by Indigenous women in the context of resource development and extraction projects. This is done by understanding Indigenous women’s experiences surrounding resource extraction and considering how Indigenous knowledges can guide resource-related decisions, including ideas about how to understand and approach the diversity of impacts that can result from resource development and extraction.
