Native culture takes centre stage as Fort William Historical Park in Thunder Bay celebrates Anishnawbe Keeshigun, beginning Friday evening, August 19th and running to Sunday, August 21st, 2011.
Anishnawbe Keeshigun pays homage to all First Nation peoples and their collective contribution to the fur trade and the evolution of Canada. Traditional singing, drumming and dancing highlight the festival along with craft demonstrations and samples of Aboriginal foods including Bakwezhigan (bannock), strawberry drink, wild rice, smoked fish as well as corn on the cob available at select times while quantities last.
A new component for the festival happens Friday evening with the presentation of a one-act play featuring Fort staff entitled, “Toronto at Dreamer’s Rock”, by Drew Hayden Taylor at 6:30 pm followed by a musical performance by Arvel Bird on the fiddle and flute at 9 pm, both happening in the Main Square.
Alain Deneault and William Sacher wrote Imperial Canada Inc.: Legal Haven of Choice for the World’s Mining Companies (2012) to provide Canadian and international public opinion with tools to help ask critical questions about Canadian activities in the South and in Eastern Europe, as well as about the role of the Canadian government in relation to these activities. It is hoped that the evidence presented here will encourage Canadians to enter public debate about how the mining industry is regulated in Canada and to form an opinion on this topic independent from the one suggested by official agencies or media that belong to large Canadian financial conglomerates and tend to espouse their interests.Monday June 10, 2013 in Meta-Talon

As a First Nations writer of fiction and non-fiction, and frequent lecturer on the university/college and conference circuit, I am commonly asked about my political persuasion. Do I swing left, right, or am I more ambidextrous?Wednesday June 5, 2013 in Meta-Talon
