Steven Kobza | Technical Support
I’m a natural born Canadian, lived here all my life. My coding background is mostly in C++, Java, and Python. I was working on a Computer Science diploma at Douglas before transferring to SFU to work on an interactive arts and technology bachelor of science (which is a lot of words to say IAT BSc). 
These days I tend to use Java and Python mostly because Java is used for school projects and Python is just a very versatile language. I like to do almost any kind of coding work, tend to prefer more backend work, so not having to design things, but I really enjoy solving problems. Collaborations and creative work are things that are still fairly new to me so I’m not sure about my interests in those yet, but I’m always willing to try something new!

Tina Robinson | Indigenous Studies Advisor
Tina Robinson is a Ts’msyen Aboriginal artist and mother of three beautiful children. Her crest is a Killerwhale and she belongs to the Ginaxangiik tribe of Lax Kw’alaams. Tina started her Chilkat weaving journey in 2016 under the watchful eye of Master Weaver William White and continues this journey of strengthening her skills while surrounding herself with knowledge holders and the understanding that she is weaving these complex designs alongside those that have weaved hundreds of years ago. 
My vision as an artist is to strengthen the art of Chilkat that was established generations before and to share this knowledge with future generations to come, beginning with my daughter. My weaving reflects who I am as it is a part of me and because of this I am focusing on reviving ancient weaving techniques, constructive elements, and complex processes used in Chilkat weaving. Due to the complexity of design and process, strict guidelines must be followed. This practice is taught only to a select few as it is a very sacred art form that belongs to the Ts’msyen people of the North Coast. 
This vision started with a dream. I was surrounded by my ancestors speaking in the traditional language of Sm’algyax and I innately knew that this is where I belonged. I heard traditional songs being sung in the background. Though I did not speak the language, somehow I understood what they were singing. This dream ignited a fire within to pursue my journey in understanding my traditional and ancestral culture. My wisdom to listen to my heart and follow the path of the generational dreams of past, present, and future, is the force behind my artistic pursuit. Every piece that I get the opportunity to create will be woven with pride and I honour my teachers and ancestors for entrusting me with this gift of Chilkat.
