Support UVic-Tsawout 2023

Archaeological Field School at ȾEL¸IȽĆE

UVic and Tsawout First Nation have combined forces to host the 2023 summer archaeology field school, focusing on the ancient village site of ȾEL¸IȽĆE in Cordova Bay.

Your donation will play a crucial role in bringing together UVic undergraduate and graduate students with youth and cultural workers from W̱SÁNEĆ communities to support archaeological collaboration. With your gift, you will promote reconciliation by fostering a better understanding of Cordova Bay’s Indigenous histories and teachings.

We have a fundraising goal of $35,000 to ensure the involvement of Indigenous community members, conduct a public information campaign, perform radiocarbon dating, provide practical security on site, and acquire necessary equipment. All donations will receive a tax receipt and 100% of the funds will be allocated to this specific initiative.

For help or if you have questions regarding your donation, please contact the Development Office at or by phone at 250-472-4924. Our office hours are 8:30am-4:30pm, Monday to Friday.
