Abraham Maslow and the Blackfoot of Siksika

This event is from the archives of The Notice Board. The event has already taken place and the information contained in this post may no longer be relevant or accurate.

Ryan Heavy Head tells the story of how psychologist Abraham Maslow's strongest contribution to motivational theory, normative human psychology, and organizational psychology were all crucially influenced by the Blackfoot way of life that Maslow observed at Siksika in 1938. The details of this story emerged through research conducted by the late Narcisse Blood and Heavy Head at Red Crow College under the SSHRC-funded Itsinikssiistsi Project of 2004–2007.

This is a free event, but seating is limited.
