Naomi Narcisse on building resilience, overcoming self-doubt and the journey of becoming a life-long learner


My name is Naomi Narcisse (Indigenous Studies alumnus).

I am from the St'at'imc Nation muta7 Xaxli'pmeckan. I grew up on a tiny reserve of 20 homes between Lillooet and Cache Creek, called Ts'kw'aylaxw First Nation. I am very fortunate that I was raised by my parents who spoke our language often, and raised me and my siblings on traditional foods/medicines.

I left my home territory at a young age, and dropped out of high school 4 credits shy of graduation. I did not pursue my post-secondary education until later on in my life. After I raised my three children as a single mother, to an age where they could understand the importance of education and how it would benefit us all.
