KaNaTa Dialogue - Oxford University

Shawn A-in-chut Atleo, National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations, Canada, gave a talk to a packed room at Queen Elizabeth House, University of Oxford on 9 October 2013. National Chief Atleo talked about the priority issues facing Indigenous nations in Canada, from education to resource development and the enduring requirement for recognition and affirmation of relationships to achieve fairness, justice and harmony.

His speech was followed by a talk by a former National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations, Ovide Mercredi, who during his time in office addressed the UN in both New York and Geneva.

The seminar was held as part of OPHI’s work on Social Isolation, part of their research into the Missing Dimensions of poverty.
