Reverse Town Hall: First Nations to Government Knowledge Sharing

A Conversation on Indigenous and Traditional Knowledge

November 17, 2021
12:00 to 1:00 PST
Via Zoom
Register now: fnps.ca/event/reverse-townhall-firstnations-government/

#JoinUs for a discussion on Indigenous and Traditional Knowledge, with Dr. Christopher Horsethief from the Ktunaxa Nation and Colleen Hemphill, Chief Negotiator and member of the Gwa'sala-'Nakwaxda'xw Nations. Beyond the legislative obligation to incorporate Indigenous knowledge into decision-making processes within federal departments, there is a strong appetite to learn more about the many diverse Indigenous worldviews and practices and how to respectfully and meaningfully find a path to integrate western science and Indigenous knowledge. An important first step is listening directly to communities on how we work together and where to start.

In advance of the webinar, we invite you watch the 20-minute Ted Talk by Dr. Horsethief www.christopherhorsethief.com/presentations/ and a 36 minute documentary called Seven Days with the Chief www.christopherhorsethief.com/documentaries/.

This is a joint FNPSS – BCFC Secretariat event under the Strengthening Public Service Institutions Initiative.
