Julie Morris (Kāshā)

Instructor / Learning Transformation Specialist – Indigenization
Residing campus
  • Prince Rupert

I am Kāshā (Caw-shaw). People also know me as Julie Morris, but I prefer to be called by my traditional Indigenous name, Kāshā.

I am a member of the Tahltan Nation. I belong to the Tsek’iye (Crow) Clan and the Tehkahche (Frog) is our Crest. We are from the Tl’abanot’īne territory. I make my home in La̱x Kxeen (known today as Prince Rupert).

I have been at CMTN since 1999 teaching fundamental to provincial level courses in Education and Career Planning, Mathematics, Computer Studies, English, and First Nations Studies.  

The sharing of kinship, teaching, and passing down stories have always been part of my world, and today it remains a powerful and natural way for me to connect with people.

“That’s my something new!” is my favourite saying. My grandmother, Kāshā (Julia Callbreath), always said that she was never too old to learn and that she learned something new every day.

When I am not spending time with family and friends, I am teaching, learning, crocheting, working-out, reading/listening to a good book, or cheering on the Canucks.
