Tse Tsa Watle Tse Tsa Watle welcomes Daniel Sam (Tsartlip), who will speak about the Indian Shaker Church.

Daniel Sam is a Tsartlip First Nation elder and a former elected Chief in his community. He has graciously consented to speak to the Tse Tsa Watle learning community about the Indian Shaker Church, a faith denomination unique to North American West Coast First Nation communities. He has been involved in the Shaker Church for over forty years and will be teaching us about its origins and its role in his and other communities. We are honoured that he has agreed to take time out to support our Tse Tsa Watle initiative here at RRU.

For those of you who are new to the initiative, Tse Tsa Watle (means 'Coming together in interdependence') is a six-part speaker series that brings together RRU staff, faculty and students with elders and knowledge-carriers from surrounding First Nations. You can find links to previous videotaped sessions here: The goal of Tse Tsa Watle is to prepare well for effective intercultural collaboration. As we move throught the 6-part series, we are forming a learning community that will soon begin to collaborate on projects that will further strengthen the relationships we are creating now. All students, faculty, staff and interested community members are welcome.

Please bring a lunch. Coffee and tea are served.
