About this Event
“ŚW̱,XELOSELWET Tiffany Joseph is a W̱SÁNEĆ knowledge carrier apprentice. Her learning has included SENĆOŦEN language, W̱SÁNEĆ plant relatives, and environmental restoration through various training experiences. This workshop will incorporate these learnings as she’s weaved them into a story about how a young girl named SEMSEMÍYE transformed herself into a bee-ing who would care for the land for generation after generation.”
Instructor Bio: Tiffany Joseph is an advocate for the wellbeing of W̱SÁNEĆ territory through her learning and teaching of the interconnectedness of W̱SÁNEĆ people, SENĆOŦEN language, pollinators, sea-life, and terrestrial flora and fauna that are Indigenous to the W̱SÁNEĆ ÁLEṈENEȻ. This learning and teaching intertwines SENĆOŦEN language, feminism, biodiversity, trauma-informed healing, environmental science, and more which have been shared with her through intergenerational teachings, and relationships with environmental scientists, anthropologists, linguists, counsellors, and more through her own learning and healing journey. She shares this knowledge in alignment with the elders’ teachings to share what you know.

There are a limited amount of Pay-What-You-Can tickets available for folks who self-identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC). The Compost Education Centre is in the process of examining the ways in which our program accessibility can be improved for all members of our community. This ticket gesture is by no means a fulsome examination of the systems of oppression that exist for people inside and outside of our community. We welcome your ideas and feedback.
Please pre-register for this event.
Customers can request a refund within 30 days of ticket purchase. After 30 days refunds and workshop exchanges are not permitted due to administrative staffing capacity.

The Compost Education Centre is located on unceded and occupied Indigenous territories, specifically the land of the Lekwungen speaking people—the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations. These nations are two of many, made up of individuals who have lived within the porous boundaries of what is considered Coast Salish, Nuu-Chah-Nulth and Kwakwa’wakw Territory (Vancouver Island) since time immemorial. At the CEC we seek to respect, honour and continually grow our own understandings of Indigenous rights and history, and to fulfill our responsibilities as settlers, who live and work directly with the land and its complex, vital ecologies and our diverse, evolving communities.
