IECC - About the logo

Keepers of knowledge

The logo for Centre for Indigenous Education & Community Connections was designed by the late Ditidaht artist, Tsa Qwa Supp (Art Thompson). We gratefully acknowledge Tsa Qwa Supp's generosity in allowing us to use this design to symbolize the services we provide to students.

The two wolves represent members of a governing traditional system called Tl'uu Kwalaa. This system is practiced within the Nuu-chah-nulth Nation. Certain members of this system are keepers of knowledge. This logo represents a male and a female keeper of knowledge.

Tsa Qwa Supp passed on to the next world on March 30, 2003. He was extraordinarily generous to Indigenous students at Camosun College and other places of education. We miss him.
