Grant Alphonse, Board Member

Grant Alphonse is well-known in his community as a strong advocate for Tsilhqot’in language, traditions and culture. He has represented his nation on provincial and national education, and political platforms. Grant has worked as a court interpreter and Indigenous school liaison and support worker. This earlier work strengthened his skill as a language educator, and until 2017 he was the Principal at Tl’etinqox Elementary School. Grant’s late father did not attend residential school and he retained a great deal of his Tsilhqot’in community’s traditional knowledge, including Tsilhqot’in language, which he passed down to Grant. Grant is grateful to be passing on his father's traditional knowledge to his community and nation.
