On Friday evening, conference registrants and guests will gather for a special banquet. The banquet will be held at the Montreal Planetarium and will feature the 2017 Distinguished Ethnobiologists Steven Weber and Steven Emslie, the co-founders of our Society. We will conclude the evening with a special treat of singing and dance with a Haudenosaunee singing society.

The banquet will feature local cuisine and traditions so that we can celebrate the rich diversity and heritage of the region. The caterer (Kwe Kwe Gourmet) has designed a special menu for our event.
