Valeen Jules is a queer former foster kid, former homeless youth, and first-year college dropout from the Nuu-chah-nulth and Kwakwaka’wakw nations. Valeen has been known to friends and colleagues as “the doula that never leaves”, “the eagle soaring above”, and “the only top at the table”. They value equally their labour in community, in birth work, in being both a mentor and mentee of ancestral teachings, in supporting their immediate family of 8, and in hyping up their QTBIPOC friends.
