Elder Requests

Elders are available to support special events through providing a traditional welcome or closing, and are available for interviews, guest-lectures, and workshops within the SFU community. 

Elder Booking

Please submit a completed Elder Request Form to iscadmin@sfu.ca at least two weeks before the event date. If this is your first time booking an Elder, or you would like some more information, please see our Elders Program Protocol Guide below. 

Other Indigenous Offices

In the event that we are unable to provide an Elder for your event, we recommend contacting the Indigenous offices below as they often have Elders’ Programs as well.
