  • Description

    Description

    I'm of mixed Quw'utsun', English, French, Scottish and Irish heritage, with a background in carpentry and sport administration along with social, Indigenous and environmental justice. I'm an open minded person in my 30's who leads a fairly face paced life balanced with adventure and chill times.

    Looking for help with cultural projects, woodworking, gardening and harvesting off the land and sea, with local friends chipping in on community projects and adventures. I'm also supporting various community events and gatherings to do with indigenous resurgence on the island. Come join us here! Huy ch q'u -thank you!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I enjoy working to some good tunes, hiking, paddling and heading out dancing or to yoga. Also hunting and food processing of all kinds in the fall. I am involved/ connected in with various local cultural, arts, sport, adventuring and land based activities here. I am part of a local indigenous restoration work at my families village site of Xwaaqw'um (Burgoyne Bay Salt Spring). Help out with summer youth camps, harvesting and processing local indigenous plants. Benefits during spring/ summer months are participating and learning from local Indigenous Elders and knowledge keepers. You can learn about local Indigenous land and sea use, and cultural experiences or learn the best spots to go hiking/ adventuring of all kinds!
