Mohawk Elder Tom Porter was one of the keynote speakers at the 40th Annual Elders Gathering that took place February 26 - 28, 2016 at Trent's Gzowski College.
Dr. Porter is a member of the Bear Clan of the Mohawk Nation at Akwesasne, and champion of the revitalization of Indigenous languages and traditions.
This year’s Elders Gathering honoured the historic release of the final report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada. The three-day event provided a forum for a large contingent of Indigenous and non-Indigenous people, including students, faculty, and members of the local community, to explore their role in the reconciliation process.
