Friends of Cheakamus First Sunday: Potlatch Methodology Discussion
Join Dr. Justin Wilson, & Tawx’sin Yexwulla (Aaron Nelson-Moody) in conversation about the ancient system of potlatching as place-based inspiration for modern program or policy development. This methodology is a good place to start discussions for those who work in the social services sector (e.g. education, health care, youth and community services) that interact with First Nations community, or are interested in where to begin with protocol and reconciliation discussions involving Indigenous communities.
10:30 AM – 2:30 PM
Cheakamus Centre South Entrance - Spakwus House
