Zak Watson is a settler of Japanese and British ancestry who was born and raised on the unceded
land of the K’ómoks nation. From an early age he developed a strong interest in both the cultures
of the Indigenous nations of British Columbia and the cultures of the South Pacific. He moved to
unceded lək̓ʷəŋən territory in 2017 to study anthropology at the University of Victoria, with a
specific focus on ethnography. After he finished his degree, he completed a diploma in Social
Justice, which helped him to understand anthropology through the lens of systemic injustices.
