Dr. Jacquie Green
Executive Director
Office: FPH 149

Kundoqk (Jacquie Green) PhD, is from the Haisla Nation, and Tsmishian/Kemano ancestry. She is the Executive Director of the Office of Indigenous Academic and Community Engagement (IACE) at the First Peoples House, University of Victoria. Her scholarship and leadership are embedded in Indigenous knowledge, its histories and philosophies, thereby looking at histories, identities, place and language through storytelling. She focuses her research, writing, teaching and leadership to include Indigenous and social justice knowledge, epistemologies, pedagogies and philosophies.

She is a daughter to the late Ray & Mary Green, mother of 2 daughters, and momma jax to seven beautiful grandbabies. She moved away from her community in 1995 to pursue post-secondary education, never thinking her education would lead to becoming a faculty member. What keeps her grounded in her scholarship is maintaining a connection to family and community, importantly, she ensures that any kind of 'sport' is a part of her life.

Her vision is that we will never need child protection for Indigenous children, but rather that our practices and leadership will consist of revitalizing our diverse cultures. She believes the work of decolonizing and Indigenizing requires a commitment from all people and in this, this is social justice work.
