Master of Arts in Archaeology Candidate, SFU

I am excited and grateful to be a part of the Xwe’etay/Lasqueti Archaeology Project team.

I grew up in the territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations. While receiving my BA in Anthropology at the University of Victoria, I developed a passion for coastal archaeology and collaborative community-based research.

It is a privilege to now learn from the communities that call Xwe’etay home.
