My name in commerce is Aubrey Jackson but I am Gitxsan, Xsimoyget Yal of Damlaxhamid.
Being born into a Matriarchal Society is a blessing as are my five beautiful children and my beautiful, loving wife.
I am also a retired Fishery Officer of Fisheries and Oceans Canada – previous to this I was a Commercial Fisherman and Logger.
I was raised amongst Xsimoyget and Elders who groomed me in our traditions and culture daily - this influenced my lens and how I approach all things in my life.
Though my Damlaxhamid Culture and Western Ideology conflict, in my professional capacity, I found a way to navigate the conflict and I successfully engaged indigenous leadership for government purposes - this is a skill that is lacking in government and industry today. This lack of capacity is the motivation behind promoting understanding and acceptance which in turn will generate positive change.
I look forward to meeting you all during the webinar and in the meantime, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call 250 267 9639.
