CONFERENCE SPEAKERS (Partial List)

as of September 13, 2021


Gurdeep Pandher is a Sikh-Canadian, Yukon-based author, teacher and performer, who brings joy and positivity through his Punjabi dance videos and classes. Gurdeep was born into a farming family, in a small village in Siahar, Punjab. He moved to Canada in 2006 and became a Canadian citizen in 2011. Moving to Canada inspired him to tour the entire country and further understand his adopted nation. He has lived in numerous Canadian provinces, including small Canadian villages, but found his home in a wilderness cabin in the Yukon Territory.

Gurdeep teaches diverse groups across Canada, building cross-cultural bridges and encouraging acceptance, inclusivity and positive race-relations. In an effort to promote intercultural understanding throughout Canada, Gurdeep has blended Bhangra with various other cultural dances present in the country. Gurdeep's Yukon-made Bhangra videos have inspired people globally.
