New process for booking Elders and Knowledge Keepers

The Office of Indigenous Academic and Community Engagement has introduced a new process for booking Elders and Knowledge Keepers. We have created a form for internal bookings (i.e., those made by UVic units and/or groups for events hosted by the university). You will need a Netlink ID to complete the form. We are unable to arrange bookings for events hosted by non-UVic groups.

The form is available here.

All requests for a SELW̱ÁN ȽTE Knowledge Keeper will go through the Cultural Protocol Liaison, to ensure that they are done in an appropriate manner which follows the protocol of the Elder/Knowledge Keeper.

If you are uncertain or have further questions, please feel free to contact Diane Sam, Cultural Protocol Liaison, at 250-472-4106 or via .
