Celebrate the Book Launch of "Potlatch as Pedagogy"

Tuesday November 20 - 5 - 7 p.m.

STY-WET-TAN Great Hall UBC 1985 West Mall

FREE

The Office of Indigenous Education & the UBC Faculty of Education Invite You to Celebrate the Book "Potlatch as Pedagogy."

Inspired by Haida ceremonial practice, father and daughter present a model for learning that is holistic, relational, practical, and continuous.

In 1884, the Canadian government enacted a ban on the potlatch, the foundational ceremony of the Haida people. The tradition, which determined social structure, transmitted cultural knowledge, and redistributed wealth, was seen as a cultural impediment to the government’s aim of assimilation.

The tradition did not die, however; the knowledge of the ceremony was kept alive by the Elders through other events until the ban was lifted. In 1969, a potlatch was held. The occasion: the raising of a totem pole carved by Robert Davidson, the first the community had seen in close to 80 years. From then on, the community publicly reclaimed, from the Elders who remained to share it, the knowledge that has almost been lost.

Sara Florence Davidson, Robert’s daughter, would become an educator. Over the course of her own education, she came to see how the traditions of the Haida practiced by her father—holistic, built on relationships, practical, and continuous—could be integrated into contemporary educational practices. From this realization came the roots for this book.

Conversation with authors:
Sara Florence Davidson, PhD, is a Haida educator and scholar. She has worked as an educator with adolescents in the K-12 system for close to a decade in both British Columbia and Yukon Territory. She is currently an Assistant Professor in the Teacher Education Department at the University of the Fraser Valley where she works with teacher candidates to bring Indigenous content, perspectives, and pedagogies into their classrooms.

Robert Davidson is one of Canada’s most respected and important contemporary artists. A Northwest Coast native of Haida descent, he is a master carver of totem poles and masks and works in a variety of other media as a printmaker, painter and jeweler. He is also a leading figure in the renaissance of Haida art and culture. Robert Davidson is best known as an impeccable craftsman whose creative and personal interpretation of traditional Haida form is unparalleled. https://www.robertdavidson.ca/
