Ellen White, Kwulasulwut, died Tuesday at age 95, and her funeral was held Saturday morning at the Beban Park Social Centre.
White was a member of the Order of Canada and the Order of British Columbia and her obituary remembers her as an "educator, cultural knowledge keeper, author, linguist, herbalist, healer, traditional midwife, and political activist and advocate."
She was one of the founders of the Tillicum Haus Aboriginal Friendship Centre and was an elder-in-residence in Vancouver Island University's First Nations studies program.
"She possessed a pure, kind and radiant heart," said Les Malbon, who described himself as one of White's adopted grandchildren as he delivered her eulogy Saturday.
White's name, Kwulasulwut, translates to ‘many stars' and Malbon alluded to that as he addressed the people gathered in the social centre.

I see how much she loved her family and I appreciated, personally, how much that love changed me and how it's changed all of us to be better people and behoove us to be kind to one another and to work towards a world of unity."
Malbon said the White home was always filled with visitors, and Ellen White also travelled to meet people and sh...
