UFV Curator

Teresa Carlson is Curator at UFV. Current projects include engaging and collaborating with Stó:lō to document and present aspects of traditional and contemporary ways of knowing.

Teresa aims to assist with reconciliation efforts at UFV by supporting decolonization and Indigenization of the academy. Most of all, she hopes her work will contribute to the reclamation and repatriation of Indigenous knowledge by the Stó:lō.

"(Research has) been a really sweet way to optimize my time at school. Looking back, I’m so grateful that I did this. It has truly been a highlight to work under Shelley (Canning). She has been a wonderful mentor and has impacted me and my nursing practice immensely."
