Why Idle No More with First Nations Chief Satsan
The Beedie School of Business and Simon Fraser University’s Public Square are honoured to host Satsan (Herb George), hereditary chief of the Frog Clan of the Wet’suwet’en Nation, as he discusses the Idle No More movement, as well as meaningful changes in the past and future for Canada’s Aboriginal peoples.
Idle No More is an ongoing protest movement originating among Canada’s First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples. It is gathering support from the non-Aboriginal population in Canada, and internationally. The movement promotes indigenous sovereignty and seeks to protect water, air, land and all creation for future generations.
Come to this free event to find out why Idle No More is generating unprecedented interest in understanding concerns of Aboriginal peoples in Canada and why it matters to everyone.
An SFU alumnus, Satsan has been President of the National Centre for First Nations Governance, an important organization recently close due to funding cuts.
Satsan has served as Speaker for both the Gitxsan and the Wet’suwet’en Nations. He has a long history of dealing with Aboriginal rights and title, as well as Aboriginal self-government and education, and served two three-year terms as the elected BC Regional Chief for the Assembly of First Nations.
