As a visitor in these territories, I give thanks to Coast and Straits Salish Nations for sharing their culture, knowledge and community and I'm grateful for the generosity and hospitality that I have received here. My Indigenous ancestry comes from my father; through him I belong to the Nlaka’pamux Nation in Lytton, BC. Through my mother’s family, I am from a strong Welsh lineage.
Growing up away from my own territory I feel fortunate that I have been able to access culture and community through my education. I look forward to connecting with learners in the classroom or at one of the many college events. There are a lot of exciting things happening at Camosun. Come and check us out.
