A2E invite you to join this important a dialogue via Zoom on Wednesday, October 28 at 8:30 am Pacific / 10:30 am Central / 12:30 pm Atlantic (for approximately an hour and a half).
Mi’kmaq Elder Albert Marshall, Drs. Jesse Popp, Andrea Reid and Deborah McGregor will discuss the idea of Euaptmumk or Two-Eyed Seeing and other related frameworks for understanding across ways of knowing in dialogue with moderator Jacquie Miller.
Euaptmumk Two-Eyed Seeing is a guiding principle developed by Mi’kmaq Elder Albert Marshall that recognizes that better outcomes are more likely if we bring two or more perspectives into collaboration. Accordingly, Euaptmumk can also be understood as a gift of multiple perspectives, an insight and framework that could help us do better in many areas of our shared lives, including our relationship with the earth. The guests will discuss how Two-Eyed Seeing requires learning together and from each other, and will discuss other transsystemic ways of knowing and understanding, including how the relationship committed to in the Two-Row Wampum can help guide our understanding and collaboration across ways of knowing.
October's dialogue, "Two-Eyed Seeing and Beyond" is generously sponsored by the Canadian Mountain Network who supports the resilience and health of Canada’s mountain peoples and places through research partnerships based on Indigenous and Western ways of knowing that inform decision-making and action.
The Canadian Mountain Network's projects represent a once-in-a-generation opportunity to position Canada as a global leader in mountain systems research at a time when Canada’s mountain systems are undergoing rapid and uncertain change.
