"For an Amerindian Autohistory: The Foundations of a Social Ethic

Guest Speakers:

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.
