Tansi! My name is Carly Cunningham. I am Woodland Cree and Metis from Peavine Metis Settlement in Northern Alberta and connected to Sucker Creek First Nations through my late chapan Nora Cunningham (nee Willier). I am also Scottish through my mother’s side. Through marriage, I also belong to the House of cha cha tsii us within the Huu ay aht First Nations and carry the name, aa saa wis. I grew-up on the territory of the Sinixt Peoples in Rossland, BC and currently live in Lkwungen territory with my husband hii ni nah sim (Tommy Happynook Jr.) and my son ha wilth win is (Mahihkan Happynook).

I began my academic journey at Camosun College before transferring to the University of Victoria where I earned a B.A. in Sociology. I joined the First Peoples House team in 2009 as the First Peoples House Secretary and am very happy to be working in the House and supporting Indigenous students.  If you have any questions about the First Peoples House, need to book a room, or just want to say hello, please stop by!
