Description

Tony Copping asked me to pass along the following message. On Monday April 16, 2018 at the Hillside Coffee and Tea Co, 1-3-1633 Hillside Ave, starting at 6:30pm, Tom Henly will be speaking about his latest book; Raven Walks Around the World. There is no charge for this event.

 

 While kayaking the remote area around South Moresby Island, Henley was struck by the clear-cut logging and desecration of ancient Haida village sites. Henley collaborated with the Haida for the next fourteen years to spearhead the largest environmental campaign in Canadian history and the creation of Gwaii Haanas National Park. Later, he became a co-founder of Rediscovery--a wilderness program for First Nations and non-aboriginal youth that would become a global model for reconciliation.
