Dr. Richard G. Herbert



Dr. Herbert is a professional with a broad educational background. Initially trained in medical microbiology and immunology, molecular biology, research and development, and as a veterinarian and educator, he further developed his teaching, organizational, analytical, infrastructure development and written communication skills. During an eleven year period in solo veterinary practice in Northern Ontario, Dr. Herbert was exposed to the harsh realities of northern living and injustices towards First Nation individuals and communities. He began to refocus his skills toward building solutions to those injustices in 1998 and has spent the last ten years in discussions, teaching, developing, and pursuing funding with First Nation communities and their leadership. Dr. Herbert became involved in developing a general cultural process through which any missing Aboriginal infrastructure could be developed and built; rebuilt traditional infrastructures would respect all traditional Aboriginal law and customs while harmonizing with outside municipal, provincial, federal and international law and customs. These restored and reconciled First Nation traditional infrastructures would allow First Nations to take their place in the global community. The key to rebuilding and harmonizing traditional infrastructures with Canada lies dormant within Aboriginal institutions waiting to be reactivated by the traditional law carried by Elders. Dr. Herbert works through the charity he founded, CAID, to rebuild traditional infrastructure destroyed by Canada’s policy of forced assimilation. He provides capacity First Nations need to organize and initiate their rebuilding process.
