It is with great pleasure to invite indigenous peoples working in libraries and information management to come together again in Aotearoa New Zealand, for the Sixth International Indigenous Librarians' Forum at Te Wānanga-o-Raukawa, Otaki, Aotearoa New Zealand to continue the vision initiated ten years ago at Waipapa Marae, Auckland.

Join distinguished speakers and attendees from Russia, Japan, Canada, the U.S. and Korea to discuss critical wild Pacific salmon conservation issues. Rapidly changing climate, habitat and markets highlight the need for key scientific information and effective management practices from the Pacific Rim salmon nations. By Bringing the Future into Focus, the 2009 State of the Salmon Conference will provide a unique forum to explore how we move from conservation principles to action – today.

The conference will feature:

  • Presentations from throughout the North Pacific
  • A special reception at the Vancouver Aquarium
  • Active dialogue facilitated among participants
  • Simultaneous interpretation to be provided in Russian, Japanese and English
