Sheila Sampson

Ethnology Collections Assistant

Sheila Sampson began working for the Royal BC Museum in 1993, first in the clerical and library areas, then in public programs and now as a collections assistant in ethnology. Sheila is a First Nations person of Coast Salish and Nez Perce ancestry. She grew up learning about the culture and the traditional ways, and has come to appreciate the boundaries between what can be taught publically and what is to remain sacred.

Sheila has worked in the Expert In The Gallery program, and provided tours to research associates, First Nations groups and treaty groups. She has worked on ethnology, archaeology, education and non-Aboriginal collections.
