We are pleased to announce the formal launch of the Circle on Philanthropy and Aboriginal Peoples in Canada (“the Circle”), celebrated with about eighty guests representing community foundations, private foundations, United Ways, individual philanthropists and others in Vancouver on May 11. The event included a roundtable discussion on Aboriginal land-based and culturally-focused education innovations at the Native Education College, followed by a “meet and greet” welcome event at the Grunt Gallery. We were particularly honoured to have the gallery showcase an exhibit by Haida artist Michael Yahgulaanas, who specializes in Manga-style modern interpretations of Haida motifs, and to have Chief Ian Campbell of the Squamish Nation provide words of welcome and Mr. Robin Cardozo provide a testimonial as CEO of the Ontario Trillium Foundation, an early and vital supporter of the Circle. Click here for an insightful video of a summary of the roundtable discussion. And thank you to John Huddart for his creative expertise in putting the video together.
