Camosun expresses its sorrow and stands alongside the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc

Camosun College is horrified by the news that the remains of 215 children have been found in the grounds of the former Kamloops Residential School, which sat on the traditional territory of the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc. Our hearts go out to the families and communities who were and are directly affected by this news and by the original loss of their children. We are all affected. This affirms Camosun’s commitment to redressing the impact of our shared history. In memory of these children, Camosun flags on both campuses will be lowered.

My name is Marcey and I am Nuu-chah-nulth from the Ahousaht, and I have family connections in both Salish and Kwakwaka'wakw Nations. I am a long-time visitor in the beautiful territories of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations. I have worked in many areas of community service and education. My formal education began at Camosun in the University Transfer program, and I completed a degree in Psychology at the University of Victoria and a MA in Counselling Psychology with an Indigenous specialization. After working in community, I returned to Camosun because I knew I'd love to work here and help students find their educational path too. I am now both an Indigenous Advisor and an instructor in the Indigenous College Prep program. I feel privileged to be welcomed into this community. Kleco, kleco.
