Indigenous Speaker Series at Vancouver Island University
November 29 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
If you live in the Nanaimo-Parksville area you might be interested in this in-person event. This is the eighth annual Indigenous Speakers Series at Vancouver Island University. Wilson Williams (Sxwíxwtn) will share the story of the Squamish Nation’s fight to have their traditional lands in downtown Vancouver returned to the Nation. He will speak about the history and importance of the lands and how the Nation’s development of the Sen̓áḵw lands at the foot of the Burrard Street Bridge will contribute to the future prosperity and well-being of the Nation in his talk: Our land, our spirit, our story: The Squamish Nation’s return to Sen̓áḵw. This free event will be moderated by Nahlah Ayed, host of CBC Radio’s Ideas. Visit Vancouver Island University’s webpage to attend this free in-person event.
