Q̓ə pix ʔidaʔas , the Indigenous Gathering Place in Campbell River provides a culturally relevant space for connection and celebration.
Pronounced kah-pee-ih-dah-us, Q̓ə pix ʔidaʔas translates as “gathering place” in Lik̓ʷala.
Designed in consultation with students and the Wei Wai Kai and Wei Wai Kum Nations, Q̓ə pix ʔidaʔas is designed to honour the location of NIC’s Campbell River campus, within the territory of the Liqwiltokw People.
Booking the space
Q̓əpixʔidaʔas is gathering place, but it is also a sacred space that was inaugurated with powerful ceremony. We must be mindful of its spiritual nature when using the space. In this way the use of Q̓əpixʔidaʔas must support the goals of Working Together, NIC’s Indigenization plan, which was guided by the collective voices of Indigenous Peoples on whose land NIC campuses sit, and which was developed as a commitment to work together to meet the needs of Indigenous learners, and to add ours to the efforts toward Reconciliation, Indigenization and Decolonization.
Q̓ə pix ʔidaʔas is currently available for booking by members of the NIC community via a Service Desk ticket. Please read the User Guide carefully.
Details on community bookings are being finalized. This page will be updated when community bookings are available.
