TRU's Coyote Project:
- is a pan-institutional initiative comprised of commitments from all nine faculties, Open Learning, the Library and TRU World.
- reflects TRU’s commitment to meaningfully Indigenize its curriculum and services by honouring and integrating the values and traditions of the Secwepemc and Shuswap peoples on whose traditional lands TRU’s Kamloops and Williams Lake campuses are situated.
- reflects the institution’s, and its individual faculties’ and divisions’, longstanding respect for local Indigenous communities, and commitment to fulfilling the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.


The story ‘Coyote Brings Food from the Upper World’ tells how Coyote brought to earth the plants that the Secwepemc use for food and medicine, and how animals and fish got their special shape and features. The story closes with Coyote gathering all the people together and reminding them to enjoy the environment where they are, to share what they have, and to not ruin or destroy. “It is your job to care for the land and to protect all living things. You are its caretaker.”
