Nicholas XEMŦOLTW̱ Claxton

Academic Director of Living Lab, UVic School of Child & Youth Care

I work with UVic as an assistant professor in the Department of Child and Youth Care. I am also a W̱SÁNEĆ community member and past Chief of the SȾÁUTW̱ (TSAWOUT) First Nation. My teaching and research are centered on the revitalization and resurgence of Indigenous knowledge through community-based and land-based research and education. I am honoured to support the Living Lab Project’s community-driven work, which bridges eco-cultural restoration and Indigenous Resurgence.
