Session Info

Coast Salish lands and communities are living libraries. From living libraries stem Indigenous language and story. Please join Jane Alcorn, Penelakut and Patricia Geddes, Librarian and Coordinator for Indigenous Initiatives, in the sharing and learning together from living libraries for a welcoming hour of Hul'q'umi'num' language and story at VIU Library.

Anyone interested in listening, learning, and practicing Hul'q'umi'num' language is invited to join us at these drop-in sessions.

Accessibility directions for session scheduled in building 305 room 444: Use the main floor library elevator located directly behind Starbucks inside the library to access the meeting space on the 4th floor.
