Firekeeper

Brad Thom

Greetings! My name is Bradley Thom and I am from small village of 900 people in the Northwest Territories called Fort Providence. It is located at the mouth of Great Slave Lake and the beginning of the Mackenzie River. I am a 4th year student majoring in political science and minoring in Indigenous studies. I enjoy learning through conversation. I believe that everyone is a book. You can open it open it up to any page and it will always be interesting. With that being said, if you want someone to bounce ideas off of for a paper or something, I’m around. Happy studies!

Administrative Councillor

Peter Underwood

Hey hey, I’m Peter, I’m from W̱SÁNEĆ and Norway. I started at UVic in 2015 studying biology. I always love learning about traditional medicine and botany; so if you have the thyme, say aloe and we can discuss plants and you might even grow frond of my puns. I’m also a fan of photography and the arts, and even spent some time travelling with a photography class before university. In my downtime I usually like watching Netflix, knitting, crafting, or chilling somewhere in the First Peoples House or NSU room.

Advocacy Councillor

Malayah Maloney

Hello! I'm Malayah, I'm from Nova Scotia/Nunavut. Although I grew up in Iqaluit, I've lived in Vancouver/Victoria for almost eight years. I'm a second year student at UVic studying Social Sciences as well as Fine Arts. In my spare time I'm usually out shooting with my film camera, exploring all the hidden gems of Victoria. Besides that, I'm always in the First Peoples House drinking some tea,connecting with friends or doing my homework.

Councillor at large

Brooke Schaefer

Hello! My name is Brooke Schaefer, I am Dene first nations from treaty 8 territory up in the Northwest Territories. I’m a big ol nerd for cartoons, sci-fy, the outdoors, my ukulele and puns. Along with partaking in those fun activities, I am also taking social sciences here at UVic while working at the First Peoples House as a campus cousin. Being a part of the Native Student Union is an incredibly rewarding experience, and my time as the Administrative Councillor has shown me how amazingly respectful, comforting and dynamic involvement in a community like the NSU can be.
