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."

The acronym represents the first letter of these word-phrases, and is a small Africa Intermeidary Organization (AIO) working with underserved communities and groups using its voice to advocate for change and educate on the FEEEDS issues.  

All of the FEEEDS issues are also connected to human cultural communication and how we relate as people and as nations to each other. FEEEDS represents the first letter of each word or word-phrase noted above.
