Tyrone Elliott’s Bio
Tyrone Elliott, Ancestral name Tuwu’xu’wulth’, is a Cedar bark weaver from Snuneymuxw’ and Quw’utsun. He has resided on Lekwungen territory for the past 4 years. Taught to weave by his Mother, Violet Elliott, from a very young age, Tyrone has over 20 years working with Cedar bark and other natural materials. He is currently reclaiming his language, Hul’q’umi’num, and incorporating it into his Work as he learns. Much of the Teachings that Tyrone has incorporated into his life have been derived from Cedar weaving, harvesting and other land-based Teachings. In co-facilitating with his mother, and eventually facilitating his own workshops, Tyrone’s aim has been to impart a loving connection with Cedar and the land, and also to convey how Indigenous Laws derive and correlate with and from land based Teaching such as Cedar weaving.
