Terry Coyote Aleck, the Indigenous Teacher in Residence at St. Hilda’s. Coyote is a traditional Pipe Carrier from the Lytton Band.

He enjoys sharing teachings from his elders and other life lessons he has learnt through his own healing journey.
He will be leading Drumming Circle the four Sunday of each month at 4pm. This is a wonderful time of rhythm, song, and story.
