“Isolation has been the great saving grace of this remarkable place, but today isolation could be its doom.” – Wade Davis on Northern Canada
You may not have heard the name Wade Davis before, but anybody who considers themselves an advocate for diversity should be aware of his work. Davis studied Anthropology and Botany at Harvard University and has been celebrated as a speaker and advocate for global indigenous cultures, people and languages.
Although recognized for his global initiative, Davis discusses a location that hits close to home in the video below. Davis discusses a valley in northern British Columbia known to B.C. first nations as the Sacred Headwaters, which is at risk of being ruined. The valley is home to three of Canada’s largest salmon rivers, the Stikine, the Skeena and the Nass.
