French explorer, author, and Buddhist scholar, Alexandra David-Néel

“…French explorer, author, and Buddhist scholar, Alexandra David-Néel led a full and exceptional life. In 1924, at the age of 55, she was the first European woman to cross the Trans-Himalayas in the dead of winter to reach the forbidden city of Lhasa in Tibet. Scaling 19,000-foot peaks without supplementary oxygen and wearing crude leather boots. During her life, which spanned almost 101 years, she wrote more than 30 books on eastern religions and remains today the most authoritative source on Tibetan Buddhism.
The only child of an unfortunate marriage, Louise Eugénie Alexandrine Marie David was born on October 24, 1868, in Saint-Mandé, Val-de-Marne, in between the Bois de Vincennes and the defensive wall surrounding Paris. Her father, Louis David (a distant relative and namesake of the renowned artist, Jacques-Louis David) was a Hugenot Freemason, left-leaning journalist and teacher, and her mother, Alexandrine Borghmans, a Catholic native of Belgium….”

FYI: Project-Based Training and Mentoring Program on IP for Women Entrepreneurs from Indigenous Peoples

If not you, pass it on..

Project-Based Training and Mentoring Program on IP for Women Entrepreneurs from Indigenous Peoples

"… The World Intellectual Property Organization is accepting applications from Indigenous women who may be working on a project related to intellectual property (IP). The deadline is August 30.
The “Project-Based Training and Mentoring Program on Intellectual Property for Women Entrepreneurs from Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities” is open to up to 20 women entrepreneurs – such as artisans, designers, traditional musicians and dancers, researchers, healers or small-scale farmers – who are planning or have already initiated a project based on traditional knowledge.
You can find more information about the Program and download the application form through this link: https://www.wipo.int/tk/en/women_entrepreneurs/ …"

Program structure

The Program has a practical approach and consists of two phases:

Training phase

The training phase will take place in Geneva, Switzerland, from November 11 to 15, 2019. Participants will:

  • acquire basic knowledge of the main principles, systems and tools of the IP system as they relate to TK and TCEs;
  • share and learn from each other’s experiences and meet potential partners that can provide support with the implementation of their projects;
  • further develop and implement TK or TCEs-based projects that have an IP component.

Mentoring phase

The mentoring phase will take place in 2020. During this phase, participants are expected to implement the project they have selected.

Mentors will be assigned to guide the implementation of the IP components of the projects.

Mentoring will principally take place through email and phone.

Requirements

Participation requirements

Participants are strongly encouraged to take the WIPO Primer on IP (DL-001) – a three-hour distance learning course offered free of charge by the WIPO Academy – or the WIPO General Course on IP (DL-101) prior to the training phase.

Language requirements

Candidates should be able to effectively communicate in English, French, Spanish or Russian. Simultaneous interpretation will be provided from and into these languages during the Geneva-based Workshop.

Rene Fumoleau par L’Aquilon

“… Ce site est une production en-ligne du journal L’Aquilon, le souffle francophone des Territoires du Nord-Ouest ..”
https://www.aquilon.nt.ca/fumoleau/

“…His first parish was in Rádeli Kóé/Fort Good Hope, which involved a long boat journey down the Dehcho into a new world.
Through all of the years, his attachment to the Dene peoples deepened. He celebrated the strength of their ancestral wisdom and committed himself to their desire for change.
René published As Long as This Land Shall Last as a contribution to the struggle over land claims; directed two films, I Was Born Here and Dene Nation; he also took thousands of photos, now housed in the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre in Yellowknife. The Museum uploaded this slideshow tribute in his memory this morning….”

Fumoleau came to the Northwest Territories in 1953, worked closely with the Dene “… Rene Fumoleau, a well-known priest, photographer and storyteller with a long history in the North, has died. […]
He did research on Treaty 8 and Treaty 11 and was known as a social justice advocate for the Dene. […]
Fumoleau had been living with dementia. He passed a few minutes before midnight on Tuesday, according to his close friend Patrick Scott.
It was Fumoleau’s birthday. He had just turned 93.
“He was very lucid on Sunday afternoon and he was very happy,” Scott said. “He smiled, just a beautiful Rene smile: ‘I’m very happy, and I loved my life.'”
Fumoleau was born in France. He was ordained as a Catholic priest in 1952 and came to the Northwest Territories in 1953 as an Oblate missionary.
After resigning from the Oblates, he was made a priest in the Diocese of the Mackenzie, working with the Dene in Fort Good Hope and Deline over the next several decades, according to the NWT Archives. …”

“…René Fumoleau began creating stories of his experiences in 1988, writing them first in two books of poetry, Here I Sit, and The Secret, and then telling them at events and festivals across the land. His stories can also be heard in a 2014 documentary by Nicolas Paquet Living like the Land (Ceux Comme la Terre). …”

True North Rising: 50 years of memories from Whit Fraser

Northreads

IMG-2494I wanted to review this book because it’s a reporter’s memoir and a good one, by someone who’s been everywhere and met seemingly every interesting person in the North. 

But Jim Bell over at Nunatsiaq News beat me to it, and his review of this “big-hearted” book sums it up so well that I’m going to defer to him entirely.

“An expression of abiding love for northern Canada and its people, True North Rising is an irresistible collection of stories, rants, and intimate confessions,” Bell writes. I urge you to read his full review here.  

Whit Fraser, if you didn’t know, spent several years with the CBC, starting in Iqaluit (then Frobisher Bay) and then Yellowknife, where he wound up running the CBC’s coverage of the Berger Inquiry into the Mackenzie Valley Pipeline. He later became the founding chairman of the Canadian Polar Commission and later still, executive…

How ‘Green Book’ And The Hollywood Machine Swallowed Donald Shirley Whole

“…In August 2018, Edwin Shirley III sat in disbelief as he watched a screening of Peter Farrelly’s new movie Green Book, a simplistic racial harmony story set in the Jim Crow south. Viggo Mortenson stars as Tony “Lip” Vallelonga, a racist Italian American New Yorker. Mahershala Ali is the supporting actor who is tapped to play Dr. Donald Waldridge Shirley, a Black, queer, musical genius, and Edwin’s uncle, who died at 86 in 2013.
As is typical of a Hollywood White Savior Film, Green Book places Dr. Shirley in several dangerous circumstances with racist white men so that Vallelonga can swoop in and save the day. In the process, Vallelonga teaches the world-renowned Black pianist about Black music and how to eat fried chicken.
Though Dr. Shirley did hire Vallelonga as a driver and bodyguard during one of Dr. Shirley’s concert tours in the south, much of the rest of the movie’s plot (co-written by Vallelonga’s son Nick Vallelonga) is disputed by more family members of Dr. Shirley than just Edwin—none of whom say were consulted or even contacted at any point during the writing or production of this film.
A “symphony of lies”
“It was rather jarring,” Edwin shared with Shadow and Act of his first experience seeing this on-screen portrayal of his uncle as a Black man who is estranged from his family, estranged from the Black community and seemingly embarrassed by Blackness.
Never mind that Dr. Shirley was active in the civil rights movement, friends with Dr. King, present for the march in Selma, and close friends with Black musicians — from Nina Simone to Duke Ellington and Sarah Vaughn — Dr. Shirley was also very much a part of his family’s lives….”
