On Saturday, April 23rd, Chief Dr. Robert Joseph delivered a talk at TEDxEastVan, a day-long event showcasing celebrated thinkers and visionaries connected to the Vancouver community.

TEDxEastVan brought together creators, catalysts, designers and thinkers to share in the TED philosophy, “Ideas Worth Spreading”. This independently organized event saw over a dozen speakers take the stage to a packed audience at the York Theatre in East Vancouver.

Sharing the stage with local inventors, activists and community leaders, Chief Joseph shared his story of attending residential school in childhood, overcoming the resulting traumas and emerging as an advocate for peace and reconciliation.
