Distinguished First Nations leaders will speak at a symposium on 3 November, the final day of the 17th Annual Canadian Conference on Global Health.*
Following a welcome by Shawn Atleo, First Nations Chief for Canada, Marie Frawley-Henry, Chair of the AFN Diabetes Working Group, will give an overview of the symposium, which is entitled 'Pathways to Global Health through Indigenous Knowledge: First Nations as Custodians of Natural Law in Restoring Healthy, Sustainable First Nations communities'.
STOLCEL (John Elliot), a Member of the Board of Governors of the First People's Cultural Foundation, will speak on the importance of preserving First Nations languages and on the understanding of the First Nations as custodians of Natural Law.
He is a descendant of the hereditary family of Chiefs of the WSANEC (Saanich) People, and is the co-founder of 'First Voices', the world's first web-based Aboriginal language archive.
Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA awarded STOLCEL an honorary PhD in 2009 for his work to bring out the connection of traditional language and the underlying field of Nature that upholds every culture in peace and progress.
Cosinye, teacher and sister of STOLCEL, will share personal health benefits and successes of the programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in western Canada.
In the coming days Global Good News will continue to feature the eminent speakers at the upcoming symposium.
