Indigenous Education in School District No. 64 (Gulf Islands) is dedicated to supporting the success of Indigenous learners in our school district, as well as promoting a deep awareness of Indigenous culture and history among all students.
National Aboriginal Day was marked on June 21, 2017 with Galiano students documenting the Gulf Islands School District ‘Welcome Figure’ project. Galiano Community School’s middle years students are pleased to release their Welcome to the Gulf Islands short film that captures the essence of the journey thus far for the Welcome Figure.
Deeply proud of her Cree & Irish roots Shannon is Indigenous Education Coordinator in SD64. As a life long learner and outdoor enthusiast, the First Peoples Principals of Learning align closely with her passions and values as district coordinator, principal, middle years eco teacher and member of a close knit family.

I am of Secwepemc descent, born Neskonlith, raised in Maple Ridge (where I honed my craft of being a cultural teacher) and now being refined into island life on Salt Spring. It has been a privilege and a pleasure being part of the energy, community, and team at SD64.
