At the start of May we welcomed Samuel Wong (métis) into NPM as the second of our two 2019 QEII Interns from the University of Toronto.
The Canadian Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Scholarships programme aims to mobilise a dynamic community of young global leaders to create lasting impacts both at home and abroad through inter-cultural exchanges.
Samuel is an undergraduate student from the University of Toronto studying both Equity and Indigenous studies and is an up and coming advocate of Indigenous and environmental issues. He has been participating in various related movements over the last year, namely the Wet’suwet’en solidarity movement.
During his time with NPM Samuel will be collaborating on a project surrounding the well-being benefits of Kapa Haka at the individual, community, and national level. He aims to use the experiences he acquires through his time at NPM to contribute to change back within his home community on Turtle Island.
