Archaeology as Reconciliation: Community-Based Heritage Projects in Canada

A talk by Dr. Terry Clark (PhD), assistant professor, Department of Archaeology and Anthropology, University of Saskatchewan

Dr. Clark came to the U of S in 2016 from the Canadian Museum of History. He is the director of the shìshàlh Archaeological Research Project (sARP), a community-based collaboration of the University of Saskatchewan, the University of Toronto and the shìshàlh Nation. This project looks at long-term resource use, status inequality, mortuary practices, settlement patterns, territoriality and ritual within shíshálh lands. He is also engaged in several other heritage projects in Canada and around the world.
