A Celebration of Life: Settler Colonialism in Canada Virtual Public Talk #3

A Celebration of Life: Virtual Public Talk #3
Presentation by Langan Goforth

My name is Langan Goforth from the Peepeekisis First Nation in Treaty 4. I am the Indigenous Cultural Liaison for Phoenix Residential Society. I have been active in Indigenous Culture as a Dancer, Singer, Elders helper since I was a boy. I continue to participate in cultural activities and use my knowledge to assist others. I have traveled to many countries throughout the World sharing the gift of song and dance.

I will be speaking about the Circle of Life and the different protocols, traditions, dances, ceremonies that are important to our First Nations People in the Treaty 4 territory. As the leaves and grass returns as the seasons change it is a rejuvenation and celebration of our New Year. This is a time that we as First Nations begin our ceremonies, celebrations, begin new relationships and renew past relationships within our First Nations communities. I look forward to speaking about my life experiences from a young boy to today as a Grandfather. Our way of life is beautiful and it will be my pleasure to share a little bit of our culture with everyone.
