Mark Wedge

Mark Wedge brings a lifelong knowledge of aboriginal culture (he is of Tagish, Tlingit, and European ancestry) and broad experiences in both using and training others in using peacemaking Circles for complex issues. For 15 years, he has carried the Circle process to workplace and public forums, including not only sentencing for individual crimes but also for dealing with the outstanding issues in Canada between victims of Mission School abuse and the Anglican Church, as well as in settling land claim disputes between First Nations and the Canadian government. Serving as the spokesperson for his clan within the Carcross/Tagish First Nation government, Mark has also become involved in creating Circle-based forms of contemporary tribal governance. He currently teaches in communities throughout North America, specifically through the Justice Institute of British Columbia.
