Community is medicine

This phrase, spoken by SUILC Co-chair Samantha Jack, encapsulates our ethos. Skookum Surrey hosts one Community Gathering a month, one Post-Secondary Gathering a month, and four Guide Group gatherings a month.

Skookum Surrey welcomes all Indigenous people who are living in the City of Surrey to join our family-friendly, intergenerational Community Gatherings! Our Community Gatherings are held once a month. They focus on creating an environment where urban Indigenous people can take part in cultural activities. 

Additionally, we host gatherings for Indigenous post-secondary students in Surrey. The post-secondary gatherings alternate monthly between the Simon Fraser University and Kwantlen Polytechnic University Surrey campuses. Indigenous students come together over their shared experience and create community connection with each other. Skookum Surrey welcomes Indigenous students at SFU and KPU to join our Post-Secondary Gatherings. 

The Skookum Surrey Guide Group meets once a week. Our Guide Group is  currently at capacity. If you are interested in learning more about our Guide Group, we encourage you to attend our community gatherings and get to know the Skookum Surrey team.
