Helen Harris

Siy sozï Helen. Likhsilyu dïstikh. Siy siyikh Tsë Kal Këyikh. Resilience coordinator ha'isdzin. My past education and experience definitely help me with my work, but my passion is what really drives me to do the work to bring together our Witsuwit'en people to engage in activities or to learn our Witsuwit'en language with me. It also really helps to work with a great team.
