Abstract:
"The question about the meaning and purpose of life is as ancient as it is always new. It is deeply personal and worthy of lifelong, longer than life, consideration. It is also a question that shapes cultures, nations and empires. Much depends on whether we have the courage to hear this question and allow it to search out our future as a country. I am convinced that the question of the Tsimshian chief €́“ Why are you here? €́“ now addresses us as a country. For we are all here and we are all now, Indigenous peoples, settlers and newcomers. This remains and must become even more our question together: Why are we here at this time and in this place called Canada?"-- Provided by publisher.
