Tuma Young, QC is an L’nu from Malagawatch First Nation and his band is Eskasoni First Nation. Tuma was born into the Squirrel clan for the Rabbit clan, Tuma is the spouse of Nicolaas Honig and resides in Sydney River where he teaches Mi’kmaq Studies at Cape Breton University.
Tuma is the first L’nuwisit (fluent Mi’kmaq speaking) lawyer called to the bar in Nova Scotia (2001) and the incoming President for 2021-22. Tuma has been a member of the Photographic Society of NS for over 10 years
Tuma will be presenting on “Legal Issues for Photographers!” (a general primer on Copyright, Intellectual property, consent, waivers, & insurance). This presentation is not as sexy or exciting as the latest techniques of Nick Honig’s multi flash strobe photography of coloured water droplets or Laszlo Podor’s amazing macro shots but it is very good to know this information as you go out and photograph our world. See you on March 8, 2021!
