Hadih (hello) my name is Cecilia John. I am from Saik’uz First Nation on the Kenny Dam Road 9.5km southwest of Kelhkoochek (Vanderhoof). My late grandparents are Jasper and Mary Thomas. My late parents are Bert Casimer and Barbara Thomas.
I have lived at our village for most of my life. My education includes the completion of grade 12 and my first and second year of university.
Inspiration for my stories comes from my late ‘Atsiyan and ‘Atsoo who have passed on the Dakelh (Carrier) language on to my siblings, cousins, and I.
I am very grateful to share my stories of our traditional territory of Saik’uz First Nation.
