My name is Rodolfo Perea, and I am a cultural promoter at the National Polytechnical Institute. I want to make this presentation as if my teacher and friend, Maestro Eduardo Montiel were telling it to you.*2. My name is Eduardo Montiel. I have been an sculptor for many, many years. I have presented my work in New York, London and Tokyo. Every Sunday I deliver a Sculpture Workshop at the Garden of Art in Mexico City.  Drop by if you have a chance. You can practice your Spanish and we can talk about many things, such as El Quixote. As you correctly guessed, I love art and sports.*3. 2010 is an important year for Mexico. We have the celebration of the Bicentenary of the Independence and the Centenary of the Mexican Revolution. Cultural events are promoted everywhere, such as this one in the Mexican Congress, where you can see historians telling the anecdotes about the Independence and the Revolution. There are different contests about this and I invite you to participate.*4. We almost never have snow in Mexico City. Except in the Zocalo, where in December we have a skating ring right in the main downtown square, traditionally the place for important celebrations. You can see the Cathedral and part of the National Palace, where the President has his offices. Behind the ramp, there is an electronic clock (not shown) indicating the days left before the 2010 celebrations begin. *5. As an sculptor, one of the things I like to see are the ice and snow sculptures that are made for and during the Winter Olympics.*6. This reminds me of a colleague, Maestro Abel Ramirez, who has participated in many international competitions and has won different prizes and awards. He has participated in the Cultural Olympics in Albertville, France and Lillehammer, Norway. And he has shown  his work in Canada and many other countries. He said that one of his students particpated in the ice scuplture competion of the Torino 2006 Cultural Olympics.*7. Once a humming bird entered into my office and could not find the exit. So I had the chance to touch him so that he could find the way out. What a feeling of  lightness! And freedom! Similar to the feeling I get seeing a ski jumper from the ramp. *8. I also like speed.*9. Here is the Mexican Bosled team, practicing on a Canadian bobsled. Cooperation. Besides freedom, pride in teamwork is also being emphasized in our 2010 celebrations. *10. Memories. This presentarion also has to do with memories. 1968 was a year of social movements in Mexico and other parts of the world. And the Summer Olympic Games. This is one of the Olympic Games poster.*11. Enriqueta Basilo, a Mexican runner, was the first woman to light the Olympic Flame in the Games. You can see her going up the stairs at the University City Stadium. Mexico City. Sandra Henderson and Stepahne Prefontain did the same in Montral 1976. *12. Carrying the torch. The lighted torch, in some contexts is another symbol for freedom. I like the story of Prometheus.*13.And going back to team work, paying attention to instructions is important, to know what each one is supposed to do.*14. To continue working, even under adverse conditions, such as sanitary contingencies.*15. To finally start putting things together to get a transportable mural. And taking photographs of the event, to keep a record.*|6. Or an in-doors mural. Here, transferring the design of the painting to the wall. *17. And maybe, preparing the future muralists!*18. You can see an example of team work right beside the Mercado de las Flores (The Flower Market) at San Angel, Mexico City...*19. ...where one is happy to see that people of different walks of life stop to take a look at what one is doing, for them. Here, the central figure is a representation of the goddess of the flowers.*20. Or as an indidvual work, on this painting representing Maestro Jaime Sabines.And I want to finish with one of his poems:On MythMy mother told me that I cried in her womb./ They said to her: he'll be lucky./Someone spoke to me all the days of my life,/ into my ear, slowly, taking their time./Said to me: live, live, live!/It was death.    Thanks to UBCEl Universal,Jeffery SimpsonCanada por descubrirMexican National Council for Arts and CultureGeneral Consulate of Mexico in Vancouver*My presentation features images from an exhibit currently on display. If you want further information, or want to see the exhibit, it is on display in the Gallery, on the second floor, until March 1, 2010.*UBC has a rich Olympics History. It starts in 1928 with our first UBC Olympian. Harry Warren, the man on the far left, was the first UBC student to compete for UBC in the Olympics. Renowned athlete, professor and builder of UBC athletics. He was one of Canada's best sprinters, selected to 1928 Olympic team. This 1926 Rhodes Scholar introduced field hockey and cricket to UBC - "father of field hockey at UBC." Faculty member at UBC for more than half a century.*The inspirational story of the “Cinderella Rowers” began with nothing: no rowing experience, no money and nowhere to train.  But visionary coach Frank Read led the team to the heights of sporting achievement. With only nine months of practice together, the four-man crew captured the gold at the 1956 Melbourne Olympics. Don Arnold, Walter d’Hondt, Lorne Loomer and Archie McKinnon were all first year students at UBC. The $25,000 required to send the rowers to Australia was raised by donations from their supporters in British Columbia. The four rowed faster than anyone in the world and beat the United States team by five lengths to capture the gold. *The Ubyssey has featured many stories on the Olympians over the years, this one is from 1954 and features the Cinderella rowers at the far left on the bottom.*Father David Bauer and the birth of the National Hockey TeamFather David Bauer's vision - a "revolutionary" idea - of having a national team for Canadian ice hockey began at UBC in the 1960s. This outstanding coachs dream came true in 1964 with the Olympic Team. UBC served as the launching pad for Canadian Olympic hockey’s new direction.He died in 1988, but left behind the Father Bauer Tournament and the Father Bauer Scholarship at UBC*The 1948-50 UBC hockey team, coached by NHL and UBC Hall of Famer, Frank Fredrickson, was the first ice hockey team to be inducted into UBC's Sports Hall of Fame. Over the years the UBC men's hockey team has had two Hall of Fame coaches, encouraged Olympic gold winners, produced NHL athletes, and helped develop the national ice hockey team for Canada. *Portrait of the Chinese Students Soccer Team of Vancouver, B.C.]		Identifier	CC-PH-00406	Subject	Athletes	Creator	C.B. Wand	Date	8 Feb. 1926	Description	Inscribed: "To Master Wm. Gourlie from Chinese Students Junior Soccer Team."	The dedication shown to the sport has a presence in their personal lives as well. Quene Yip, a Chinese-Canadian athlete, became a prominent businessman and advocate of peddler's rights in Vancouver. *Thelma Wright is a historic UBC Olympian. Her father, husband, and two children are all Olympians, and she herself went to three different Olympics for Canada. *This is Anthony Wright, Thelma’s son, who went to the Beijing Olympics in 2008 for field hockey. *Many of the biggest contributors to UBC sport are from behind the scenes: Tom Johnson served as the swim coach for UBC and coached olympic teams at eight different games. He place 19 swimmers from UBC in various Olympics from 1994 to present, and was instrumental in establishing UBC’s reputation as a leading performance center*The swim team for the Beijing Olympics. UBC Blue and Gold swimmers Brian Johns, Brent Hayden and Annamay Pierce are 2004 and 2008 Games competitors and are currently at the top of their game, setting Canadian and even world records.*Many years ago, the people of Musqueam were awardedQ’aysca:m, a female figure carved out of stone, by their neighboursliving in Indian Arm. Musqueam traditions tell how Q’aysca:m waswon during a game of strength and skill, and transported toMusqueam by canoe, where she remained for generations, as theMusqueam team could not be beaten.*And on a closing note, I wanted to mention that UBC has a paralympic history as well. Featured here is Rick Hansen, an avid Wheelchair Basketball athlete. He didn’t compete in the Paralympics for this sport, but it is UBC’s strongest paralympic sport, featuring over fifteen athletes since the 2000 games. *These are all images from an exhibit currently on display in the IKBLC Gallery. The exhibit is on until March 1, and visitors can enter to win the Team Canada Hockey Jersey. I’d like to thank Public Affairs, UBC Library’s Rare Books and Special Collections, University Archives, Musqueam Indian Band and Fred Hume for their help in this exhibit.Thank you** Pecha Kucha & the Olympics IKBLC Olympic Programming Vancouver, BC January 21, 2010  HISTORICAL EVENTS, OLYMPIC GAMES, MEMORIES AND VALUES Pecha Kucha Style Presentation Vancouver 2010 Rodolfo Perea rperea@ipn.mx  Aboriginal Participation in the 2010 Games  Professor Joe Weiler – Faculty of Law UBC Robin Sidsworth – Candidate for LLM Faculty of Law UBC  • Musqueam First Nation  • Lil’wat First Nation  • Squamish First Nation  • Tsleil-Waututh First Nation  Shared Legacies Agreement • November 22, 2002 • • •  Squamish and Lil’wat First Nations Vancouver 2010 Bid Corporation Province of British Columbia  • SLA sets the stage for aboriginal participation in the 2010 Games  Shared Legacies Agreement Guaranteed Benefits • 300 acres for economic development • Skills and training project • Naming and recognition project • Funding support for the Squamish and Lil’wat Cultural Centre  Shared Legacies Agreement Benefits if Bid Successful • Shared ownership of the new athletic facilities • Youth sport legacy fund • Contracting opportunities in the Callaghan Valley • A housing legacy  Memorandum of Understanding • July 1, 2003 • Musqueam and Tsleil-Waututh • Vancouver 2010 Bid Corporation • Commitment to seek similar benefits for Musqueam and Tsleil-Waututh  Memorandum of Understanding • “As we got a little more skilled and knowledgeable, we realized that there were Four Host First Nations.
