Jen Roberts Métis, Operations Assistant
MA in Anthropology
Tawnshi/Hello! I am Métis, with Mohawk, Norwegian, and English ancestry. I was born in Port Hardy on Kwakwaka'wakw territory and have been a visitor to Lkwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ territory for 15 years. I give thanks to the Lkwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples for their generousity and kindness in allowing me to consider this land home.
I began my post-secondary education at Camosun before going on to UVic to complete an MA in Anthropology. It brings me a lot of joy to be back at Camosun as an employee and to be welcomed to Eyēʔ Sqȃ’lewen as the new operations assistant. I work mostly behind the scenes, supporting the Eyēʔ Sqȃ’lewen team with planning and coordination.
When I’m not at work, you’ll likely find me processing and spinning fibre, weaving, or gathering plants for dyes and food!
Please come by Eyēʔ Sqȃ’lewen and say hello! Pishshapmishko/Take care!
