Territory and acknowledgements
UVic is situated on the territory of the Coast and Straits Salish people. The university sits on the site of an old Lekwungen village. If you look around, you will see the remnants of an old Garry Oak Ecosystem indicating the presence of camas fields on this land.
Welcome to the ancestral land of the Lekwungen family group, Checkonien and Sungayka village ('snow patches'). This area was known for camas harvesting, trading and cultural and spiritual practices. It was home to the Checkonien family group including Chee-al-thuc whose longhouse was in what is now known as Cadboro Bay. The beach at low tide was one place the ancestors played qoqwialls ('lacrosse')—Cheryl Bryce, Songhees Nation.
