Say it Loud, Say it Clear...We Were Always Here!!
This conference seeks to bring the voices of our First Nations Peoples to the forefront. It aims to provide a platform for the holders of Traditional Knowledge to speak in a culturally safe space and place. As First Nations Peoples, our stories and our histories were transmitted through oral traditional and through our artwork, music, song, dance, lore, law and customary practices. These stories were not written down but was passed from generation to generation and has withstood the test of time and survived. We would like to pay homage and respect to all those who are sharing their stories here at this conference and your contribution is greatly appreciated, thank you.
