cha chim heyhak kwa. My name is hii ni nah sim. My English name is Tommy Happynook Jr. I am nuu chah nulth from the huu ay aht First Nations and I come from the house of cha cha tsii us. I grew up in Coast Salish territory, WJOLELP (Brentwood Bay), and am very thankful for the hospitality that my family received. I currently live in Lkwungen territory with my wife aa saa wis (Carly) and son ha wilth win is (Mahihkan).

I began my academic journey at Camosun before transferring to the University of Victoria where I earned a BA and MA in Anthropology. I am very happy to be teaching in the Indigenous College Prep, Indigenous Family Support, and Indigenous Studies programs. I am very grateful that I can give back to a department that supported me as a new student.
