Ksid Kloulechad was born in the Republic of Palau, a small archipelago in the South Pacific. Ksid’s father is of Palauan nationality, while her mother is of European ancestry and grew up in British Columbia’s Fraser Valley area. Ksid grew up learning to speak both her father’s language of Palauan and English, and she learned Palauan values from her father’s mother and his sisters. Ksid has experience facilitating cross-cultural dialogue by recording information and documenting cultural values and performance through multimedia. She regularly participates in conversation about globalization and the negative impacts of climate change in the South Pacific. In 2015, she moved to Victoria, B.C. to pursue a Bachelors of Arts in Anthropology at the University of Victoria. Ksid plans to use her degree and experience to document and research Indigenous women’s health issues. She also wants to further her education in a Masters of Public Health in order to help create better healthcare systems for minority women.
