Elders in Residence

Elders are the foundation of Indigenous communities and act as the glue that keeps our people together. They are the keepers of sacred stories, songs, language, culture and traditions.

Elders' Voices is an ongoing partnership project between the University of Victoria and Camosun College. Based on recommendations by UVic students, faculty, staff and administration, the Office of Indigenous Academic and Community Engagement (IACE) has the privilege of assembling a group of Elders from local communities to guide students, staff, faculty and administration in Indigenous ways of knowing and being.

Elders in Residence are available from September to April, Monday to Thursday, 10:00am-2:00pm, in the Elders' Lounge (FPH 112).
