Submitted by jclifton on 26 March 2018

We are delighted to announce that a dear friend and colleague, Wanosts’a7 Lorna Williams, Lil’watul from Mount Currie BC, is being honoured with a 2018 Indspire Award for her contributions to Indigenous education. The UVic Professor Emerita of Indigenous education has been living and breathing the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action on education and language since before the TRC was ever imagined. She built her career at UVic on the principle that quality education for Indigenous children must be characterized by strong cultural teachings alongside a Euro-Western education. The Indspire Awards represent the highest honour the Indigenous community bestows upon its own people.

Congratulations Lorna!
