Elder Bob Baker, a distinguished figure from the Squamish Nation, is slated to speak at the IQT Vancouver/Pacific Rim Conference. As a co-founder and spokesperson for the Eagle Song “S’pakwus Slolem” Dancer Troupe, he brings over 35 years of experience nurturing and sharing indigenous culture through singing, dancing, and educational presentations. Elder Baker’s involvement has been pivotal in reviving sea-going canoe traditions and other cultural projects, including the notable creation of the 27 ft. grandmother welcome figure at Ambleside Beach Park in North Vancouver.

His contribution to the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Opening Ceremonies is a testament to his deep connection to and impact on cultural expression and community engagement. Elder Baker will deliver the Territorial Address at the conference on June 4th at 9:05 AM, offering attendees a profound insight into the rich heritage of the local indigenous communities.

The session is particularly significant as it highlights the importance of recognizing and integrating indigenous perspectives within major technological and scientific discussions. Elder Baker’s address will set a respectful tone for the conference, ensuring that the advancements discussed are mindful of the land and traditions they impact. His presence enriches the event and bridges the gap between ancient traditions and modern innovations, fostering a more inclusive approach to technological development.
