Speaker Zabrina Whitman says Canadian society needs to respect aboriginal rights to live differently

A gathering at Acadia University this week is welcoming aboriginal and non-aboriginal academics and artists from across Canada.

It’s the third annual Aboriginal Arts Mawio’mi. Mawio’mi means “gathering place” in Mi’kmaq.

The theme of this year’s get-together is: “How can we co-exist, in a just and peaceful way, with the Land and within ourselves and each other as humans?”
