Dwight Gardiner, a field linguist, defended his doctoral dissertation on Secwépmc (Shuswap) syntax at SFU in 1993. He has studied Salish languages for over 30 years. From 1989 to 1998, he taught in the SFU program in Kamloops, where he designed the Secwépmc language curriculum, and was the project leader for the Kamloops Indian Band Traditional Use Study. Dwight has taught linguistics at Capilano University since 1998.In 1997, he was a visiting professor at Kushiro Public University of Economics in Hokkaido, Japan. This explains his Ainu headman regalia. Recently, he developed the Squamish Nation Language and Culture Certificate and is currently working on a diploma, as well as credentials for the Lil'wat and Sechelt First Nations. In the off-season, Dwight can be found looking for something, on some dusty road, between Kamloops and Mt. Lolo.
