PRESS RELEASE 02 MARCH 2001
HEILTSUK PUBLISH JOURNAL
The Heiltsuk Tribal Council is pleased to announce the debut of Heiltsuk Occasional Papers: A Journal of Social, Cultural and Environmental Issues. Issue number one, Spring 2001, has recently been published.
In order to communicate important issues and concerns of the Heiltsuk, and to enhance understanding of Heiltsuk culture and history by non-Heiltsuk people, the Heiltsuk Tribal Council has decided to publish the journal on an irregular basis as issues present themselves. It is hoped that these journals will inform public discussion on a wide range of issues.
The first issue of the Journal focuses on concerns related to the marine environment and feature articles by noted scientist Dr. Craig Orr.
Copies of the journal will be distributed to a range of individuals and institutions including libraries, resource centres and universities. The papers are accessible electronically on-line at the Heiltsuk Tribal Council's website - www.heiltsuk.com.
