“Restoring the Circle of Life in this Region:
Indigenous Perspectives for Social and Ecological Justice”
Friday October 13 @ 7:00 pm
University of Victoria, Hickman Auditorium
W̱SÁNEĆ activist Paul Cheoketen Wagner shares his perspective on the movement for social and ecological justice in the Salish Sea bioregion. He draws from his cultural work as a Coast Salish story-teller and his community organizing work encouraging municipalities around Puget Sound and the Salish Sea to transition to the post-petroleum economy. Paul articulates a vision for restoring the circle of life, promoting inter-cultural healing and peace, and rebalancing relationships among humans and between humans and the natural world.
