Fantastic visit with the citizens and leadership of Huu-ay-aht First Nations to share stories and provide updates on research activities

HEC Lab Research Director Heather, PhD candidate Vanessa, and MA candidates Jon and Marc just returned from a successful research trip. The team travelled to the Huu-ay-aht First Nations in British Columbia to work with community partners involved with their respective research projects.

A relationship between the HEC Lab and Huu-ay-aht First Nations has been part of an ongoing learning journey for many years, and this meaningful trip further strengthened these ties. Over the course of the HEC Lab’s partnership with the Huu-ay-aht First Nations, several community-based participatory research projects have been completed. HEC Lab members Vanessa, Marc, and Jon are each working on exciting projects in partnership with Huu-ay-aht First Nations.

The team extends a huge “thank you” to the Huu-ay-aht community for hosting us. We look forward to returning in April!
