Dr. Nancy Turner and Dr. Nancy Mackin are co-teaching a one-week intensive ethnobotany course in the Nass Valley this July. There is space in the course and we would love to have UVic students. Nancy Turner's section tends to fill up fast, so this is a chance for students to have a course with her and with Nisga'a Elders and knowledge-holders, complete with field trips and workshops.
Student-priced accommodations are available in the Nisga'a Village of Gitwinksihlkw where the course is held. The courses are UNBC accredited and can be applied to UVic. degrees through the Western Deans' agreement.
Interested students please contact Lori Nyce at WWN 1-800-980-8838. The syllabus is attached.
Thank you! Nancy Mackin
