2015 Forward Together Lecture - Dr. Wade Davis

The Presidents of the University of Regina, Campion College, Luther College and First Nations University of Canada present the 7th annual Forward Together Lecture:

"The Wayfinders: Why Ancient Wisdom Matters in a Modern World"

Every culture is a unique answer to a fundamental question: What does it mean to be human and alive? In this presentation, Dr. Wade Davis will lead us on a thrilling journey through Polynesia, the Amazon, the Andes, Australia, Nepal and Borneo in a celebration of the wisdom of the world's indigenous cultures.

Described by Dr. David Suzuki as "a rare combination of scientist, scholar, poet and passionate defender of all of life's diversity," Dr. Davis is a Harvard-educated ethnographer, writer, photographer and filmmaker. He served as Explorer-in-Residence at the National Geographic Society (NGS) between 1999 and 2003, and has been named by the NGS as one of the Explorers of the Millennium.

Dr. Davis is the author of close to 20 books, and his photographs have appeared in more than 100 books, magazines, journals and newspapers, including National Geographic and Time. He is currently a professor of anthropology at the University of British Columbia.
