Dr. Georges Sioui (Huron-Wendat)
Aboriginal activist, academic and author of "For an Amerindian
Autohistory: An Essay on the Foundations of a Social Ethic" and
"Huron-Wendat: The Heritage of the Circle"
Jonathon R. Dewar (Huron-Wendat)
SSHRC doctoral fellow specializing in Native Canadian literature at
University of New Brunswick
Elder William Commanda (Algonquin First Nation, Kitigan Zibi)
One of the most respected elders in North America, William
Commanda is known internationally as a political and spiritual leader.
Georges Sioui is one of the first to present guidelines for the study
of First Nations history from a First Nations point of view. He argues
that such guidelines provide a way to greatly improve the way
First Nations and Canadian society percieve each other. He also
suggests that the First Nations belief in the "Great Cirlce of Life,"
that is, making connections with the entire living world, is necessary
if human beings hope to achieve abundance, quality and peace for all.
