Elder Albert Marshall will be speaking about moving Two-Eyed Seeing from theory to practice.

Mi’kmaw Elder Dr. Albert Marshall lives in the community of Eskasoni in Unama’ki – Cape Breton, NS, though much of his youth was spent at the Shubenacadie residential school. Albert is a passionate activist, reminding us of our human responsibilities to care for all creatures and our Earth Mother. Albert has been invited to speak about Etuaptumumk / Two-Eyed Seeing on hundreds of occasions across Canada and internationally. He will humbly tell you he might have coined the phrase of “Etuaptmumk” / Two-Eyed Seeing, but you will not hear him take credit for this knowledge. Etuaptumumk encourages us to co-learn to see with the “best” or the “strengths” in different knowledges and cultural paradigms. Elder Albert is a member of a group of Atlantic Region Elders and is sought out specifically when consultation involves environmental matters representing the Mi’kmaw Elders of Unama’ki.
