Understanding Aboriginal Identity
Understanding Aboriginal Identity explores the complex issue of self-identification for Aboriginal people. Today, Aboriginal identity remains inextricably linked with past government legislation and the continued stereotyping of Aboriginal people in the media and Canadian history. From a Metis farm in rural Alberta, to the offices of Canada’s leading scholars, Understanding Aboriginal Identity examines the factors that shape who we are.

Slavery and Global Public History Conference: Facing or Deflecting the Past in Exhibitions
Saturday, Session 1 Publics, as much as historians and large cultural institutions, define how difficult history is remembered or forgotten. Smaller and independent sites and communities increasingly tell local stories of slavery and history that reflect local public memory and desires to remember or disremember a specific past. Speakers: Mary N. Elliott, Museum Specialist, The Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture Michael Frazier, African Burial Ground National Monument, National Park Service Meredith Hardy, Archeologist, Southeast Archaeological Center, National Park Service Ibrahima Thiaw, Associate Professor of Archaeology at the Institut Fondamental d’Afrique Noire (IFAN), University Cheikh Anta Diop of Dakar, Senegal Jennifer Tosch, Founder of Black Heritage Tours, The Netherlands & New York State Moderator: Françoise N.

Business Innovation, Improve Your Business with Strategic Innovation | Tony Robbins Podcast
Business Innovation, Improve Your Business with Strategic Innovation - Tony Robbins Podcast This Tony Robbins Podcast teaches strategic innovation so your business can improve and create value that puts you ahead of the competition. Do you own or manage your own business? Are you full of ideas for new products or services but unsure if you can succeed in your industry? The key to carving out a niche for yourself is not only creating something new and exciting for your customers, but in developing something that adds value to the lives of your consumers in a way that hasn’t been done before. In this nearly hour-long podcast, Tony Robbins discusses how you can become a leader in your field via business innovation. Some people spend more time working on developing their business than they do with their loved ones. With this in mind, shouldn’t your work life be worth it? Tony Robbins believes that by transforming your business, you can transform your life. Within the strategic innovation podcast, Tony discusses real-life examples of major corporations, such as Apple, Amazon and more, that identified barriers in their way and found creative ways around them. By identifying their setbacks, these major brands were able to not only find creative solutions to their problems, but establish themselves as leaders in their industries. With the knowledge provided in this podcast, you, too, can work toward carving out a profitable niche for yourself. When looking to create a business innovation, it’s essential to find unique ways to provide more value than anyone else can. Let’s make something clear though — strategic innovation is different than never-ending improvement. You want to reshape the landscape of your business and revitalize your industry by providing customers with something new. Consumers expect, and appreciate, a constant evolution of improvement, not just different iterations of the same thing over and over. Strategic innovation gives you the power to create the company you’ve always dreamed of. Innovation is something many business owners think about, but few execute successfully. Tony Robbins says that the key to a successful business strategy is to utilize innovation and marketing techniques, because you need to be able to bring something to the table that gives you a competitive advantage. For more information on how to change the way your business strategy functions for the better, listen to the podcast in its entirety.

Amidst the bluster of his critique of the discipline, Vine Deloria Jr. systematically developed a philosophical analysis that married reverse anthropology with ontography with critical ecology, well before these approaches had entered mainstream anthropological conversations. His texts—notably "God is Red" and "Metaphysics of Modern Existence"—frequently operated on two levels. First, Deloria sought to outline the ontological commitments to place within Native American traditions. In doing so, he leveled the analytical field: Chief Luther Standing Bear was accorded a symmetrical intellectual position to Alfred North Whitehead, for instance, and European communities were evaluated for the degree to which they had evolved toward Native America (rather than the other way around). Second, Deloria sought to outline the parallel commitments to history within European and Euro-American traditions in a way that made this preoccupation seem foreign and strange. Standing in the position of a native looking back, he targeted the alterity of those who claim to have transcended their indigeneity—who claimed a temporal position rather than a spatial position—as part of an overtly critical project designed to provincialize “the West.” This session has been convened to engage Deloria both as a formative voice in the struggle for what Viveiros de Castro refers to as ontological self-determination, and as a critic of the metaphysical moorings of a Western tradition that includes the anthropological project. Insofar as Deloria's intervention hinges on the relative priorities of history and place, the panel situates this engagement within existing archaeological debates (archaeology being deeply implicated in the perpetuation of a Western chronological imaginary that transforms sites into eras and places into histories). But the goal is to reposition Deloria's philosophy within anthropology more broadly. As the most influential Native American intellectual of the twentieth century, who lived much of his life in the Denver area, Deloria's work continues to dislodge and defamiliarize anthropological thought in transformational ways.
Alan Wilson Historian - The Hidden History of Britain
Turn on captions for English subtitles. Alan Wilson is a British historian specialising in the origins and ancient history of the British and the history of the ancient British kings including two real King Arthurs. Arthurian research: In 1976, after a chance meeting with historical researcher, Anthony Thomas 'Baram' Blackett, at the public library in Newcastle upon Tyne, the two men decided to put up many thousands of pounds of their own money to fund full-time research into the origins of King Arthur. The Arthurian stories, so popular today, came out of South-Eastern Wales into France, via the Normans, in the 12th century and this encouraged them to start their search in the same place. The search soon moved beyond Wales to include the English Midlands which had been dominated by the old Welsh Kingdoms for centuries. To date, Wilson and Blackett have published seven books that provide information based upon Old Welsh records that date to the 12th Century. They believe that these provide a final solution to the King Arthur story and have clearly identified the true sites of the battles of Badon (Mynydd Baedan) and Camlann. In 1983, Wilson and Blackett discovered what they believe to be King Arthur's memorial stone at the small ruined church of St Peter-super-Montem on Mynydd-y-Gaer in Mid-Glamorgan, which they subsequently purchased. The stone was offered to the National Museum of Wales (Amguedda Werin Cymru) for analysis, but the offer was not taken up. Subsequently it went on public display in various venues for some time. Following this, they employed the services of two archaeologists, (Professor Eric Talbot and Alan Wishart) in 1990, to lead a dig at the same place. During the excavations, which were authorised by the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales, several artefacts were discovered including an ancient axe, a knife and a small cross weighing two and a half pounds, that reads "Pro Anima Artorius" ("For The Soul Of Arthur"). The cross was subsequently tested by an independent metallurgical house, Bodycote PLC, and found to be made of electrum, and so certified. The cross was offered up to the National Museum of Wales for public testing, but this also was declined.Wilson and Blackett had already identified the church as an ancient historical site possibly originally dating from the first century A.D. Other major Welsh kings are buried locally. More recently, Wilson and Blackett began a search for what was known as 'The Greatest Work of the Cymru' - Cyfrangon. This is allegedly a massive, hollow, man-made hill concealed somewhere in Wales (similar to Silbury Hill). Treasure hunters in Wales have long sought this fabled hill in which, it is believed, lie several objects of tremendous historical and archaeological value, many of which may be covered in gold or copper. The use of deep ground probing metal detection and analysis equipment revealed non ferrous metal artefacts some fifteen feet below the surface of the hill at Twyn y Glog, near Ynysybwl in mid Glamorgan. Further investigation by collaborators proved that the original height of the hill lies some 30 or more metres below the Ordnance Survey height, and that the hill is therefore an artificial construct. (Berkly, G., 2007). No further tests have been made to date (10 September 2007). Lecture tours: Alan Wilson and his colleague lectured extensively in the United Kingdom, including Manchester and Jesus College at the University of Oxford, and Alan Wilson gave the prestigious Bemis Lecture in Boston in 1993. Research into claims that the Welsh settled in mid-western America in antiquity led to Wilson and his colleague, Baram Blackett, accepting invitations from American supporters to visit US sites of historical significance in 1994. The visit led to several television appearances and the deciphering of alphabetic inscriptions claimed to be in the old 'Coelbren' alphabet. Wilson also concluded that the many snake mounds in the American Mid-west were of ancient Khumric-British construction. Whilst in America, the two men were also commissioned to produce a detailed genealogy for the Bush family (friends and supporters of President George H. W. Bush). Published works: Arthur, King of Glamorgan and Gwent (with Baram Blackett, MT Byrd Partnership, 1980) Arthur and Charter of the Kings (with Baram Blackett, MT Byrd Partnership, 1981) Arthur The War King (with Baram Blackett, MT Byrd Partnership, 1982-3) Artorius Rex Discovered (with Baram Blackett, MT Byrd Partnership, 1986) The Holy Kingdom (with Adrian Gilbert and Baram Blackett, Bantam, 1998) King Arthur Conspiracy (with Grant Berkley and Baram Blackett, Trafford, 2005) Moses in the Hieroglyphs (with Grant Berkley and Baram Blackett, Trafford, 2006) The Discovery of the Ark of the Covenant (with Grant Berkley and Baram Blackett, Trafford, 2007)

Claire Campbell - Wilderness Culture and the Nature of Canada
"Webcast sponsored by Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by Green College. Professor Campbell is the Director of Canadian Studies at Dalhousie University. She teaches Canadian environmental history, history of cultural landscapes, national and regional identities in Canada, and history of the arts. Her areas of expertise also include public history and Scandinavian history. This talk takes its inspiration from a passage in Stephen Leacock's 1936 essay, "I'll stay in Canada," in which he writes: "To all of us here, the vast unknown country of the North, reaching away to the polar seas, supplies a peculiar mental background." Leacock's apparent affinity for a vast and never-seen space, the comfortable nationalization of an Ontario point-of-view, and the belief that Canadians share a "peculiar mental background" by virtue of our geographical location says a lot about Canadian attitudes toward nature in the twentieth century. Claire Campbell will interrogate this by focusing on the arts to examine Canadians' cultural investment in both the concept and geography of wilderness spaces. Her talk will focus on post-Confederation Canada. Her concern is with Canadians trying to act as Canadians; naturalizing a certain territory and certain behaviour. It will draw together an eclectic constellation of sources to give a sense of the ubiquitous reach of wilderness references, moving from the more imaginative and impressionistic in the arts, to popular and consumer culture, and then to physical places where we have attempted to realize an ideal."

This Is My Story by Henry Basil - TRC March 29, 2014
Free News Sharing and On-Line Art Gallery http://www.ciactivist.org FEATURE: The 2016 Fire and Rain art project that began in early January was inspired by news stories on wildfires that burned throughout Western Canada in 2015. Paintings were displayed outdoors publicly throughout Edmonton and their stories shared on YouTube. I used art from the beginning to defend freedom of expression on the Alberta Legislature grounds when it was verbally banned 3 times by Legislature officials. Some of the YouTubes published shared how the wildfires and flooding that followed affected Albertans, their communities and the environment. I hope my art and the stories shared will inspire us to contemplate the calamities in Alberta of 2016 as a collective and together help each other find ways and better solutions to save our planet and our children's future.

Jamie Jones: "Decelerating, Correlated, and Skewed: Understanding How the [...] " | Talks at Google
Rationality has taken a hit recently. A veritable torrent of work in psychology and economics has challenged the notion that the human brain is designed to make rational decisions. However, this observation raises a paradox. By almost any measure, Homo sapiens is a spectacularly successful species. From humble origins approximately two million years ago, humans have grown to a population that exceeds seven billion and have colonized – and come to dominate – nearly every terrestrial biome. This phenomenal growth suggests that, on average, our ancestors made very good decisions. Yet this work from psychology and economics suggests that the decision-making software that our brains run is profoundly flawed — that we are, in a word, irrational. How is it possible that a species apparently so defective in its ability to generate sound decisions can be so incredibly successful? Humans are biological entities and, as such, we are subject to the laws of evolution. However, when the rules for rational decision-making were discovered and formalized, this fact was ignored. It turns out that the rules for a living organism, anchored in the present and subject to a force of selection which is extremely averse to extinction, are quite different from the rules of abstract, formal rationality. Jones will show how the all-important need to avoid extinction in a world that is at best incompletely known has profound implications for preferences, utility, and rationality. By ignoring the condition of existential uncertainty, the theory of rational decision-making has developed distorted expectations of how an organism working in its own best interest should behave.

Ambassador Ido Aharoni | "How to Market a Country"
In order to be able to perform well in today's competitive global marketplace it becomes imperative for nations to highlight their attractive dimensions. Since the collapse of the former USSR and the end of the 'Cold War', many new nations were formed and reformed thus bringing to light the relatively new field of 'country brand management'. At its core is the belief that every place has a brand that could and should be managed. Ambassador Ido Aharoni, the founder of Israel's national "Brand Israel" program discusses the challenges countries and cities face in the process of improving their overall positioning. Aharoni discusses the various elements of the process emphasizing the need to form partnerships, conduct deep social research, map the emotional landscape and draft an effective action plan. Ambassador Ido Aharoni is the Consul General of Israel in New York and a 20-year veteran of Israel's Forein Service, whose work on improving Israel's overall positioning in the USA is knownto many in the Jewish world.

Aboriginal Youth & Media Conference at MOA (Part One)
Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by the Museum of Anthropology. "Assert, Defend, Take Space: Aboriginal Youth Conference on Identity, Activism and Film" was a day-long conference on issues of concern to Aboriginal youth. Artists from the Claiming Space: Voices of Urban Aboriginal Youth exhibition were joined by young filmmakers and activists from across Canada. Building off of the screened films, panelists discussed themes of youth identity and politics, the objectification of Indigenous women, and environmentalism and youth activism. "Claiming Space: Voices of Urban Aboriginal Youth" is an exhibition that looked at the diverse ways urban Aboriginal youth are asserting their identity and affirming their relationship to both urban spaces and ancestral territories. Unfiltered and unapologetic, over 20 young artists from across Canada, the US, and around the world define what it really means to be an urban Aboriginal youth today. In doing so they challenge centuries of stereotyping and assimilation policies. This exhibit will leave visitors with the understanding that today's urban Aboriginal youth are not only acutely aware of the ongoing impacts of colonization, but are also creatively engaging with decolonizing movements through new media, film, fashion, photography, painting, performance, creative writing and traditional art forms. Artists in the exhibition include Alison Bremner (Tlingit), Deanna Bittern (Ojibwe), Jamie Blankenship-Attig (Nlaka’pamux, Secwepemc, Nez Perce, Muskoday Cree), Kelli Clifton (Tsimshian), Jeneen Frei Njootli (Vuntut Gwitchin), Ippiksaut Friesen (Inuit), Clifton Guthrie (Tsimshian), Cody Lecoy (Okanagan/Esquimalt), Arizona Leger (Fijian, Samoan, Tongan, Maori), Danielle Morsette (Stó:lō /Suquamish), Ellena Neel (Kwakwaka'wakw/Ahousaht), Zach Soakai (Tongan, Samoan), Diamond Point (Musqueam), Crystal Smith de Molina (Git’ga’at), Nola Naera (Maori), Kelsey Sparrow (Musqueam/Anishinabe), Cole Speck (Kwakwaka'wakw), Rose Stiffarm ((Siksika Blackfoot, Chippewa Cree, Tsartlip Saanich, Cowichan, A'aninin, Nakoda, French, & Scottish), Taleetha Tait (Wet’suwet’en), Marja Bål Nango (Sámi, Norway), Harry Brown (Kwakwaka'wakw), Anna McKenzie (Opaskwayak Cree, Manitoba), Sarah Yankoo (Austrian, Scottish, Algonquin, Irish and Romanian), Raymond Caplin (Mi’gmac), Emilio Wawatie (Anishanabe) and the Northern Collection (Toombz/Shane Kelsey [Mohawk], and the Curse/Cory Golder [Mi’maq]). Also included are works from the Urban Native Youth Association, Musqueam youth and the Native Youth Program. The exhibition was curated by Pam Brown (Heiltsuk Nation), Curator, Pacific Northwest, and Curatorial Assistant Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers (Blackfoot, Blood Reserve/Sami, northern Norway).

2017 AM: Executive Session: Why Anthropology Matters: Making Anthropology Relevant and
Cont. Engaging a Larger Public Audience through Pedagogy "Teaching is one of the main venues through which anthropologists regularly reach a larger general audience over a sustained period of time. In a given academic year, individual faculty may work with between 120 to 800 students. Many of these students will not become majors but all will care for, design for, assist, or work with people from many different backgrounds. Yet, in the minds of some students and the larger public, anthropology often indexes vague ideas about Indiana Jones, “other cultures”, and even just-so stories that do not have an equal place in scientific inquiry. As Cathy Davidson writes in her 2017 article, The Future of Higher Education is Now, “we must radically reform higher education to meet the most pressing needs of our age.” What role does and should anthropology as a discipline have in these changes? What does this mean for the way that anthropologists’ approach teaching? In thinking about how anthropology matters, how do we make anthropology matter to our students? How can we optimize our teaching to reach out to students and the communities in which they belong to help them understand why anthropology matters and more importantly how collaborative work with anthropologists can be relevant for obtaining their goals? This session addresses these and other related questions through highlighting particular pedagogical strategies that can be employed in a variety of class sizes and levels both within academic and vocational settings. The papers in this session illustrate how anthropology’s analytical skill set, such as an “anthropological ontology”, participant observation, reflexivity, and social theory uniquely position the discipline to contribute to current political debates and educational shifts to more experiential learning. The papers rethink how social media, service learning, collaborative projects, and anthropological theory can be integrated into course curriculum to foster the use of an anthropological skill set in students’ daily lives. Whether it is through experiential or class-based activities, the papers show how anthropologists’ can support students in recognizing and understanding structural inequalities and critically engaging in current issues, such as immigration. They also address the challenges surrounding these approaches and strategies to address them. In addition, attention is given to how similar effects can be reproduced through the use of social media in large introductory anthropology courses and how anthropologists can prepare graduates to communicate why anthropology matters. Hidden assumptions and conflicting worldviews are at the heart of today’s debates over how to approach global challenges. Openness to different worldviews is key to finding appropriate solutions. This session’s papers call attention to the importance of anthropology in addressing these impasses and how a redesign of the curriculum can bridge the divides. Together, these papers highlight how teaching can serve as an effective platform for anthropology to reach a broader public audience and show how anthropology can and should play a central role in supporting non-majors and the broader public in becoming more aware and socially engaged citizens."

The Legacy of Nutritional Experiments in Residential Schools
Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and in partnership with the Faculty of Land and Food Systems, with support from the UBC First Nations House of Learning, the UBC Department of History and Kloshe Tillicum (Network Environments for Aboriginal Health Research). Shortly after WWII, when knowledge about nutrition was still sparse, scientists in Canada took advantage of already malnourished aboriginal communities by using them as research subjects to investigate the effects of different diets and dietary supplements. Evidence of these government-run experiments was brought to the forefront by food historian and UBC History alumnus Ian Mosby, and the research has gained widespread recognition. Sometimes the experiments involved decreasing food intake or withholding supplements. Hundreds of indigenous people across Canada were included in the experiments, of which they had no knowledge, and many of them were children in the Indian Residential School system. The fallout from this unethical treatment is still having an effect today. Join us for a panel discussion about this distressing era in Canadian history and find out how UBC’s Faculty of Land and Food Systems is working to address issues such as access to healthy, traditional food; food security for all; and land stewardship.
