HONORARY ADVISOR – Mrs. Tama Copithorne

Mrs. Tama Copithorne


Tama’s own migration story started from Japan as the first Keio-UBC exchange student on a WUSC (https://wusc.ca/) scholarship. In 1962 she obtained an M.A. in Social Anthropology and Southeast Asian Studies from Yale, and lived in many countries as a diplomat’s wife.
Tama believes in learning from others by listening, and creating a new world together. To her, creating a museum of migration to focus on the diverse peoples in Pacific Canada is part of Canada’s continuing process of nation building.
