The Mahatma Gandhi Peace Council invites you to a lecture by renowned architect Douglas Cardinal, whose iconic buildings include the Canadian Museum of History and the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington. He promotes sustainability, green building, and ecologically designed community planning. Holder of innumerable awards, Cardinal has also received 18 honorary doctorates and is an Officer of the Order of Canada.
The topic is " A Center for Peace" concerning the falls and the islands just upstream from the Parliament Buildings. Carrying forward the vision of well-respected Algonquin Elder William Commanda, Cardinal has designed a centre for peace for Indigenous peoples combined with public parkland. Importantly, this area is considered to be a sacred site.
