Heron People

We are here to practice and weave together traditional and western practices with the guidance of nine members of the Heron People who are from Xwsepsum (Esquimalt) Nation, Lekwungen (Songhees) Nation, Scia’new (Beecher Bay) Nation, T’Sou-ke (Sooke) Nation, Tsawout Nation, and Kwakwaka'wakw Nation.

Members of the Royal Roads University Heron People are here to support faculty, staff, and students throughout the year by:

  • Attending/visiting classes.
  • Hosting and facilitating different workshops.
  • Speaking about a variety of Indigenous topics, including the history of Indigneous people, such as residential school and racism.
  • One-on-one visits with students (by appointment).

If you would like to book an appointment, offer an invitation to your classroom or request another form of engagement with a member of the Heron People, please complete this form and submit your saved form by email.

Throughout the year we will host different cultural and academic activities that will include faculty, staff, students, alumni and community members. These activities will bring together not just RRU members but all Nations.

Stay tuned for any upcoming events, such as Elders Tea and Workshops hosted by the Heron People.
