Namwayut: An Evening with Chief Robert Joseph

Join the Squamish Public Library, Whistler Public Library, Pemberton & District Public Library, Squamish Nation, the Whistler Writing Society, the Friends of the Whistler Public Library, and the Whistler Pemberton Literacy Partnership in welcoming Chief Dr. Robert Joseph, OC, OBC to talk about his new book Namwayut – We Are All One: A Pathway to Reconciliation.

Chief Joseph is a true peace-builder whose life and work are examples of his personal commitment. A Hereditary Chief of the Gwawaenuk First Nation, he has dedicated his life to bridging the differences brought about by intolerance, lack of understanding and racism at home and abroad.

You can join this free event in four ways:

  • In-person at the Eagle Eye Theatre in Squamish
  • At a Livestream watch party at the Whistler Public Library
  • At a Livestream watch party at Pemberton & District Public Library
  • Online from home

Registration is required:

Our libraries are also hosting a three-week online book club focused on Namwayut in the weeks leading up to April 12. Everyone is welcome to join in this discussion.

We encourage you to read the book ahead of time, and bring your questions for Chief Joseph!
