Please join us with Keynote Speaker, Dr. E. Richard Atleo, on March 9, 2012. Dr. Atleo, also known as Umeek, helped to create the First Nations Studies Department at Malaspina University College (now Vancouver Island University) where he taught from 1994 to 2004. He is currently Research Liaison at the University of Manitoba, Associate Adjunct Professor at the University of Victoria in British Columbia, a Board Member of the Centre for Environmental Resources, and Champion to the Indigenous Adult and Higher Learning Association of British Columbia. Dr. Atleo’s book, Tsawalk: A Nuu-chah-nulth Worldview (UBC Press, 2004) introduces an ontology drawn from Nuu-chah-nulth origin stories that makes meaning of Indigenous culture. His current publication entitled "Principles of Tsawalk: An Indigenous approach to Global Crisis" elaborates on Tsawalk and is expected to be published in November, 2011. The call for symposium paper and poster presentations will follow shortly.
