University of British Columbia-Okanagan Undergraduate Research Award

I’m so excited to have been awarded an Undergraduate Research Award which means I will be spending my summer researching Nlaka’pamux tattooing and being paid to do this research. I will be spending many hours searching and looking through photos at Museums and Archives as well as reading journals written by settlers, missionaries, fur traders etc to look for any evidence of early tattooing accounts.

I am also very thankful to be part of the University of British Columbia because of its initiative with the Aboriginal Strategic Plan which seeks to improve the post secondary experience of Indigenous students.

What an exciting journey.
