2013 SAPA Workshop, January 24-25th, 2013
First Nations, Métis and Archaeology: Collaborative Approaches Towards Understanding Our Past
The focus of the workshop is to improve communications and further develop relationships between First Nations, Métis, and professional archaeologists, particularly within the province of Saskatchewan. We aim to highlight issues pertaining to Aboriginal engagement within heritage and to facilitate discussion regarding these matters. Our hope is that, based on the conclusions of this workshop, we may initiate the process of change and work together more closely to identify and protect our heritage resources. We plan on publishing a summary of the proceedings and augmenting SAPA’s best practices policy based on the results of the conference.

The MAS will coordinate transportation (at cost) for interested individuals to and from Saskatoon.  Please see either the attached form or the SAPA website for more information about the workshop. 
Please contact the MAS PRIOR TO JANUARY 16th, 2013 if you are interested in carpooling so we can make arrangements.
