Cape Breton University was the host for a full-day workshop on two-eyed seeing in May and UINR was a major contributer for the event. Clifford Paul was the day’s MC and he also gave a presentation on Indigenous Science.

83Albert Marshall gave a spirited presentation on two-eyed seeing from the perspective of a Mi’kmaq Elder with an emphasis on working together for the benefit of youth. The concept of two-eyed seeing was coined by Albert and it refers to learning to see Indigenous Science through one eye and Western Science through the other.

The workshop was attended by educators, Elders, scientists and students.
