Several leaders of First Nations peoples in Canada attended the recent, historic conference on 'Building a Healthy, Sustainable American Indian Community' at Maharishi University of Management, Fairfield, Iowa, USA.

On 26 September during the conference, Stolcel (John Elliott), a leader of the WSANEC (Saanich) First Nation in Canada, was awarded an honorary PhD from M.U.M. for his work with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in correlating the Vedic language* with the native tongue of the Saanich people.

Dr Stolcel was honoured for his achievements in bringing out the connection of traditional language and the underlying field of Nature that upholds every culture in peace and progress. He is a descendant of the hereditary family of Chiefs of the WSANEC People, and is the Co-Founder of 'First Voices', the world's first web-based Aboriginal language archive.

Dr Stolcel and his work were featured on the Maharishi Channel on 7 October. Raja Paul Potter, Raja of Canada for the Global Country of World Peace, described the awarding of the honorary degree, and noted that two leaders in the Canadian Assembly of First Nations also attended the conference. They will be presenting to the Assembly the various approaches featured during the weekend, especially to inspire the introduction of Consciousness-Based Education in First Nation Schools across Canada.

* Maharishi explains that the Vedic language is the 'Language of Nature', the sound created by the Unified Field of Natural Law interacting within itself. The Veda is the name given to the precise, perfectly orderly sequence of primordial sounds that expresses the complete unfoldment of Natural Law from its source in the Unified Field. As Maharishi states, 'The Veda in its original script is just the whisper of the Unified Field to itself.'
