Tommy Happynook, Jr., Community Liason
Ah qin ulth huk. My name is ayasaht. My name in English is Tommy Happynook Jr. I am Nuu-chah-nulth from the Huu ay aht Nation and my family comes from Cha-cha-tsi us. I am happily married to Carly Cunningham (aasaawis) and through her I am connected to the Peavine Métis Settlement in Northern Alberta. I grew up in Coast Salish territory, WJOLELP (Brentwood Bay) and am very thankful of the hospitality that my family received.
I began my academic journey at Camosun before transferring to the University of Victoria where I earned my B.A. and M.A. in Anthropology. I am very excited about being a Community Liaison for Aboriginal Education & Community Connections. It is incredibly inspiring to be able to give back to the institution that helped and supported me as a new student. I look forward to meeting you at the college or in the community.
Kleco kleco, Cuu
