On February 23 2016, Chief Dr. Robert Joseph arrived at Cape Breton University campus for the Nation2Nation Speakers Series. After a warm greeting by Stephen Augustine, Dean of Unama’ki College & Aboriginal Learning and Ashlee Cunsolo Willox, Canada Research Chair and Assistant Professor at Cape Breton University, Chief Joseph spoke to a room filled with faculty, students and staff about his journey of reconciliation. Chief Joseph also shared his vision for building a new way forward based on a foundation of dignity, hope, openness, understanding and courage.
The Nation2Nation Indigenous Speaker Series is a monthly event designed to bring all peoples together to foster a space for co-learning where respectful relations can flourish. The event was hosted by Unama’ki College and the Institute for Intercultural Health Research.
We are excited to have been a part of the Nation2Nation Speaker Series and look forward to future opportunities to collaborate with Unama’ki College and Cape Breton University.
