Come and celebrate Mexican culture with us on the evening of November 3. The program will feature a keynote address on collective well-being and international collaboration, panel discussion, photo exhibit, music and reception. Blackfoot Traditional Knowledge Keeper, Anita Eagle Bear, will offer an opening blessing for the event.   

Dr. Isabel Altamirano-Jiménez will speak on the concept of Buen Vivir as a social philosophy with roots in indigenous cultures during her keynote address. Panelists from the departments of history, archaeology, social ecology, environmental design and the Latin American Students Association will discuss her comments in a panel discussion.

The lecture will be followed by a reception with refreshments where guests will have the opportunity to view a photo exhibit entitled “Outer and Inner Space: Yucatan Peninsula and Western Canada” by photographers Cristóbal González and Ana Martin del Campo, and enjoy music by local Mexican guitarist, Hugo Daniel Siqueiros.
