Chief Jerry Saddleback Sr. introduces Dr. David Suzuki and presents him with sacred gift.
Mr. Jerry Saddleback Sr. is a member of the Samson Cree Nation in Hobbema, AB. Mr. Saddleback has lived his life through the exploration of cultural beliefs as passed down from the wisdom of his ancestors. He has the cultural creditability which is most important and he has provided the authenticity of native ideas which he openly acknowledges by the way he lives his life, and has imparted this way of life in his home and is visible in his professional conduct. His profound knowledge about the delicate relationship between humans, nature and the environment as held by Cree traditions and the age old wisdom of indigenous peoples and the human empathy conveys a sense of intellectual and experiential insights into the Cree culture.
On tour with his most important book since “The Sacred Balance” and his most personal ever, revered activist and thinker David Suzuki draws on the experiences and wisdom he has gained over his long life and offers advice, stories, and inspiration to his six grandchildren.
David Suzuki also said that we need to create voting issues that will impact young voters in order to encourage more young voters to vote. Dr. Suzuki encourages us all to go to the Blue Dot Movement website bluedot.ca to learn how we can save our Mother Earth from environmental destruction.
