Hello! I'm Wanda Good assistant to Phil Beaumont, Conference Coordinator for the next World Indigenous Peoples Conference on Education 2002(WIPCE-2002). The hosts of the next WIPCE are The First Nations Adult and Higher Education Consortium and the Nakoda Nation of Alberta, Canada. The conference will be held on August 4th-10th, 2002 in Calgary.
This conference will attract 3000 to 5000 Indigenous Peoples from around the world. Conference activities include some of the following:
- Workshops/seminars by Indigenous Peoples from around the world on Education, Indian Movements, Treaties, Traditional Practices.
- International Indigenous games, such as canoeing, lacross, horse events.
- Cultural entertainment, with groups from Hawaii, Maoris from New Zealand, Australian Aboriginees, Africans.
This conference may not come back to Canada for many years to come. It may be a once in a lifetime opportunity for some of our people.
