Track 5: CANADA 150 – INDIGENOUS HERITAGE, DIVERSITY, and NEW DIRECTIONS / Volet 5: Canada 150 – Patrimoine autochtone, diversité et nouvelles orientations

All Land Is Sacred

Friday, October 13
3:00 PM - 4:30 PM

The presentation will be explored through a brief talk on how First Nations rights are tied to land use, including how archaeology and cultural heritage must be understood to be a significant part of those rights. I will briefly discuss the idea of First Nations lead archaeology, how that would look and how this would create a partnership between First Nations and archaeologists. I will speak about why First Nations honour the land and how that connects us to each other and to the place we stand.
