Cultural Heritage Protection: Erik Blaney at TEDxPowellRiver

http://tedxpowellriver.com/ Erik Blaney, coordinator of Tla’amin First Nation’s Guardian Watchmen program. The Guardian Watchmen program was started in 2006 as a strategy to monitor natural resources in their traditional territory. It then expanded to include archaeological site protection in 2012 which began to monitor registered sites, then expanded to non-registered sites. Erik accompanies youth on canoe trips to the ancient Tla’amin village sites where they spend the days listening to the echoes of the past.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

The power of culture in a global society: Discover your cultural heritage | Nahomi Aso| TEDxTohoku

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. As an exchange student at a high school in the United States, Nahomi Aso had an experience that left a lasting impact on her life. As our world becomes globalized, there’s an increasing demand for strong communication skills. But is it just communication skills that we need in order to thrive in an international environment? Nahomi shares her insights into what’s truly important for us, and the cultural identity we should embrace.
