Highlights from the 2023 Don Rix Distinguished Keynote Address with Wade Davis

In his talk, “The Wayfinders of Genomic Wisdom,” Wade Davis unveils fascinating stories of diverse Indigenous cultures across the globe — from the ancient navigators of Polynesia to the Indigenous people of BC — and how the rich tapestry of Indigenous wisdom holds vital relevance to overcoming our modern challenges.

Genome BC was thrilled to present Wade Davis as the speaker at the 2023 Don Rix Distinguished Keynote Address. In a world where cultures are often seen through a narrow lens, anthropologist Wade Davis took us on a profound journey to explore the intricate connections between genomics, culture and the environment.
