Loyer says one early-career experience in Vancouver helped shape her. When she was an archival intern at Tsawwassen First Nation, she assisted in the First Fish Ceremony marking the beginning of the salmon run. “For Indigenous librarians, our work is always, at its core, about allowing our people to thrive, whether that’s creating a metadata scheme or filleting fish.”

Initially hesitant to pursue librarianship, Lorisia MacLeod realized early in her career that the field would allow her to combine her interests in leadership, information, people, and advocacy—and has found ample opportunity to incorporate them all.
