An Evening with Bob Joseph [VIRTUAL]
November 17 @ 7:00 pmFree
Joseph will explain how Indigenous Peoples can step out from under the Indian Act and return to self-government, self-determination, and self-reliance—and why doing so would result in a better country for every Canadian. He will dissect the complex issues around truth and reconciliation and demonstrate why learning about the Indian Act’s cruel, enduring legacy is essential for the country to move toward true reconciliation. Bob Joseph is a member of the Gwawaenuk Nation, is the founder and president of Indigenous Corporate Training Inc., which offers training on Indigenous relations to government and corporate clients. He’s also the bestselling author of His chief name is K’axwsumala’galis, which, loosely translated, means “whale who emerges itself from the water and presents itself to the world.” Moderator Alexander Dirksen is a proud member of Métis Nation BC. He has diverse experience as a researcher, facilitator, public speaker, and strategist. For this virtual program, we’ll be using Zoom.
