Keith Thor Carlson

Prof. Keith Thor Carlson holds the Canada Research Chair in Indigenous and Community-engaged History at the University of the Fraser Valley, where he has additionally been appointed Director of the new Peace and Reconciliation Centre. He has been working with Stó:lō communities and mentoring under Stó:lō Elders since 1992. Individually or with partners Carlson has authored or edited 12 books and over 50 articles on Indigenous history, including the multi-award-winning book on Stó:lō history titled The Power of Place the Problem of Time: Aboriginal Identity and Historical Consciousness in the Cauldron of Colonialism (2010). Carlson’s scholarship has been translated into three languages, transformed into video documentaries and works of public art, and found expression in expert witness legal reports. Carlson was made an honorary member of the Stó:lō Nation in 2001, and in 2017 he was elected to the Royal Society of Canada’s College of New Scholars. When not researching or teaching he can be found enjoying time with family and friends, wood carving, fishing, and strumming on his guitar.

Cliff Prang & Steven Krajnyak are funny and they are brothers in LAW. They have more than 30 years of combined improv experience (Canadian Improv Games, Panic Squad, Vancouver Theatre Sports, etc). They've performed hundreds of shows and taught dozens of workshops (which is their way of saying there have been many, but they have no idea just how many, because there have been so many). Their show is simple: you tell them, what to do, they do it, and then everyone laughs.
