Canadian astronaut and neurologist Dr. Roberta Bondar was honoured to provide the keynote presentation at the first virtual Eagle Clan Forum. Coming together to host this virtual event, the Anishinabek Nation Education Secretariat and Labour Market Development Department focused this 3-day conference on emerging opportunities in education and employment.

Dr. Bondar, who thrives on Looking Forward shared her views that there are unlimited ideas yet to be tapped and discovered about the universe, about our planet, and about ourselves, emphasizing the future demands for innovation.

“We want to remind our people, our young people, that things may be strange and different now, but there is a future, and we want everyone to be invested in it, in learning, in knowing, in being connected to where we’ve come from and where we can go,” says Polly Bobiwash, Director of Labour Market Development Department. “It’s different, but it’s exciting.”
