Knox College, Room TBD
In this “Presenting the Presenter” session, Marilyn will repeat the thought-provoking presentation she made previously in the Academy’s Who Owns the Arctic workshop. In her 50 minute presentation, Marilyn will draw a picture of life in remote northern settlements (and the larger communities) where people struggle to exist between two cultures which have different values, require different skills, and, indeed, communicate in different languages.
Marilyn has visited the Canadian Arctic numerous times, sometimes for weeks at a time, and has gained insights into the peoples and their way of life. She uses this knowledge to speak about resources for hunting, fishing, tourism and culture.
