About Lorena Dulay

Lorena’s traditional name is That-Sul-Wut from her great grandmother from Valdes Island, BC. Most of her time is spent with the Tsawout Craft Group either knitting, beading, making jewelry, or cedar weaving and the rest of her time is spent working in her community. She is a Reiki Master with over 20 years of experience and she offers drop-in Reiki treatments out of the Tsawout Health Dept.

About Indigenous Voices

As part of VIRL’s efforts to facilitate reconciliation for Indigenous and non-Indigenous members of the community, we are working with Indigenous Elders across our system to share stories and skills related to Indigenous culture and experiences. The programming is based on the Elders’ unique skills, interests, experiences, and passions. Some examples include storytelling, talking circles, drumming, and discussions on Indigenous cultures. Throughout 2018, Indigenous Voices programming will roll out at branches across the VIRL system.
