With the assistance of the Center for World Indigenous Studies, I had the good fortune to interview E. Richard Atleo in 2005. Umeek is hereditary chief of the Ahousaht, grandson of the Keesta, the last of the Ahousaht whalers. He’s a research affiliate at the University of Manitoba and author of Tsawalk: A Nuu-chah-nulth Worldview.

He will be speaking in Seattle, Wednesday, March 1, 2023 at Seattle University:

Today I present as part of the Cascadian Prophets podcast, my 2005 interview with E. Riichard Atleo. You can read the transcript in the book American Prophets.
