Creating Space for Balance: Indigenous Knowledge and Western Science — Two-Eyed Seeing — in Environmental Justice and Media
Thursday, November 5 | 5-6:30pm EST | Via Zoom
CMS Colloquium Series Livestream
Featuring Patricia Saulis, MLK Visiting Scholar, Executive Director of the Maliseet Nation Conservation Council, and a member of the Maliseet tribe of Indigenous people
Two-eyed seeing has been a contemporary concept by two Indigenous Mikmaq Elders in Cape Breton Canada. Through the use of Indigenous Oral Tradition, Elders Dr. Albert Marshall and Dr. Murdena Marshall have participated in many recordings of their concept and teachings. Their appearances at conferences across Canada and the United States provided many venues to share their work. In this presentation, Patricia Saulis will feature clips of the Elders speaking and provide some perspective on how their work could be brought forward in discussions of Environmental Justice and Media.
