Prince George, B.C. – A major accolade for a UNBC professor.

The Confederation of University Faculty Associations of British Columbia has awarded Dr. Antonia Mills the Paz Buttedahl Career Achievement Award.

The honour recognizes sustained contributions over the course of a career to the non-academic community through research and scholarly activity.

A First Nations Studies professor, her research has touched on such topics as First Nations land claims, religion and law.

Mills also wrote the book “Eage Down is Our Law: Witsuwit’en Feasts, Laws and Land Claims.

A Harvard graduate, she has been teaching at UNBC since 1994.

“I was delighted and surprised to learn I was getting the Paz Buttedahl Career Achievement Award,” says Dr. Mills. “It’s an honour to receive an award that recognizes my work for its impact on the community.”

A celebration is planned for her this Thursday afternoon in the Administration Building Atrium.

Mills will retire from teaching in June.


Congratulations, a nice acknowledgement to round out a long and commendable career. We can only hope there are some exciting retirement projects in the works.

This is a well deserved award for UNBC’s Dr. Mills. I know that she will be missed by her students, colleagues, and friends at the university. Congratulations!
