After nearly a decade working across public, private and non-profit sectors in British Columbia and the Northwest Territories, Eugene is pursuing higher education in an Indigenous studies program at snəw̓eyəɬ leləm̓ – Langara College.
Visual designer, facilitator, storyteller/performer, aspiring selektah, and emerging scholar of western and Dene traditions, Eugene’s work centers the wellness and decolonization of Indigenous men’s experiences by rehumanizing social stereotypes and rebuilding healthy communities towards accountability through new understandings of colonization trauma, blood memory, and healing.
