Dr. Trish Rosborough

T’łat’laḵuł Dr. Trish Rosborough Memorial Award
in Indigenous Language Revitalization

T’łat’laḵuł Dr. Trish Rosborough was an incredibly kind and thoughtful friend, colleague, teacher, mentor, and scholar. Trish inspired many with her humility, wisdom, strength, determination, humour, conscientiousness, and of course, her kindness.

 

Trish was committed to learning Kwak’wala and shared her passion, purpose, and dedication to language learning with so many others she encountered and worked to support on their journeys.

She taught us a method towards learning our Dene language, and in doing so, she gifted us a path towards communicating with elders, passing on language to children, empowering cultural identity, and restoring connection to ancestral language that colonialism tried to destroy. With her quiet strength and determination, she helped to steadfastly lead her students on our language journeys. With her gentle encouragement, we began reclaiming ourselves as Indigenous speakers and teachers. Her love and passion for Indigenous languages will have a lasting impact on everyone she has ever taught. I will always be grateful for her teachings.”

The good work of Indigenous language learning continues in communities and on-campus at the University of Victoria. Help us support students working in Indigenous Language Revitalization by giving to this endowed scholarship honouring the memory of T’łat’laḵuł.

 

Your gift to the T’łat’laḵuł Dr. Trish Rosborough Memorial Award in Indigenous Language Revitalization will have an impact that reaches far and wide, as we come together to lift up Indigenous language learners and carry forward Trish’s inspired teaching, learning, and research.
