Fireside Chat with Snxakila (Clyde Tallio)

April 23, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The Larry Grant Legacy Speaker Series was recently established through a partnership between St. John’s College and the First Nations House of Learning.

As the inaugural speaker for this series, Snxakila (Clyde Tallio) will talk about language and cultural strengthening initiatives in his community in Bella Coola.

Snxakila (Clyde Tallio) is an orator, ceremonialist, and historian educated in his community’s language, rituals, and customs. He was honoured by the Nuxalk hereditary chiefs and elders in 2011 and given the status of alkw – a legally recognized position validating his knowledge and role as educator in the community. This gives him the authority to act as speaker for the chiefs and conduct ceremony on their behalf. Clyde Tallio is a visiting scholar this term at UBC.

Opening remarks by Elder Larry Grant, Musqueam Nation.  Light refreshments provided.

RSVP:  Please email sjc.events@ubc.ca
