Section B: TRU Elder Requesting Form as a Volunteer








Please note:

 

Volunteer basis means no payment required. However, a small gift in-kind is appreciated. Small gifts can include coffee, tea, beverage, home-made small gifts, thank-you card, and other small gifts.

 

Traditionally a sage pouch is given to Thompson Rivers University Elders. They are given the sage pouch just before they speak. If you do not have a sage pouch, you can receive one to gift to the Elder by contacting the Office of Indigenous Education (ined@tru.ca or 250-828-5227).
