Douglas College Aboriginal Reconciliation Videos Online

The videos of aboriginal reconciliation lectures at Douglas College this past winter are now available online.

The purpose of the series of speakers was to shed light upon the topic of reconciliation between the Aboriginal people of British Columbia and the province’s other citizens.

An opening panel included remarks by The Honourable Steven L. Point, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, Chief Leah George-Wilson, Tsleil-Waututh Nation, John McCandless, Executive Director, The People Together Foundation, Alan McMillan, Faculty Emeritus, Anthropology Department, Douglas College, Chief Rhonda Larrabee, New Westminster Band, Qayqayt First Nation.

Stand-alone talks were presented by Tony Penikett (not available), Eldon Yellowhorn (SFU Archaeology), Jessie Sutherland (Worldview Strategies), and Grand Chief Stewart Phillip (Union of BC Indian Chiefs).

The speaker series asked the following questions: What does reconciliation in BC mean to you? What questions do you have about reconciliation? What information do you need to have an informed opinion? What action do you think the government should be taking? And what action should you be taking to further or refine the goal of reconciliation?
