TEDxTALK VCU Presentation Title: Endangered Cultural Patterns, Symbols & Motifs – The Importance of Their Non-Verbal Communication

TEDxTalk VCU Presentation Title: Endangered Cultural Patterns, Symbols & Motifs – The Importance of Their Non-Verbal Communication -  In her first of two TEDX Talks - Ambassador Robin Sanders highlights the importance of protecting endangered sign, symbol and motif systems around the world, noting that what she calls these non-verbal "communication expressions," are just as important as to the global community as written languages. She also notes that endangered communication expressions, should be have a similar world effort to preserve and protect them along the lines of what is done for endangered species and wildlife.

Her end points in this TEDxTalk is twofold: there is a need to create a world list/index of endangered sign, symbol, and motif systems in order to ensure more effort is made to preserve and protect them. Her TEDXTalk provided a window on this issue through her presentation on one of Nigeria's disappearing symbol and motif systems called "Uli," on which she also wrote a book called "The Legendary Uli Women of Nigeria."
