Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Thomas E. Hukari has a Bachelor of Arts in anthropology from the University of Oregon and a Master of Arts and Ph.D. in linguistics from the University of Washington. He began conducting research on Coast Salish languages in 1973, when he first worked on Puget Salish in Washington state. He later concentrated on Hul'q'umi'num in British Columbia (Vancouver Island Halkomelem spoken from Cowichan Bay to Nanoose Bay on the east coast of the Island). Along with Ruby Peter, Hukari has written pedagogical and reference materials for the Cowichan Tribes (including a dictionary) and has taught numerous courses for the Tribes on writing and speaking the language. Hukari and Dr. Donna Gerdts from Simon Fraser University have collaborated on a research project that focuses on Hul'q'umi'num verb morphology and co-authored a short grammar of Vancouver Island Hul'q'umi'num. Hukari was a professor of linguistics at the University of Victoria from 1971-2007, when he was appointed Professor Emeritus.
