The Voices of Saanich is a very apt name for Wendy Wickwire's career as an anthropologist who has delved deeply into the oral history that inspired BC's indigenous people for millennia. Her most recent book, At the Bridge, is a biography of ethnographer James A. Teit. A tireless Indian rights activist, Teit spent four decades helping British Columbia’s Indigenous peoples in their challenge of the settler-colonial assault on their lives and territories. Please join us for what promises to be an insightful discussion into the history, people, and language of those who came many years earlier to the lands on which we live.
