Archaeology and Reconciliation: Panel Discussion
Thursday, March 22, 2018
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM, 270 EITC-1 (Doors open @ 6:40 PM)
A UMASA / MAS joint venture
Despite sharing an interest in the protection of cultural heritage, differences in priorities, goals and methods have contributed to an often-rocky relationship
between professional archaeologists and Indigenous peoples of Canada. Now, as Truth and Reconciliation is at the forefront of Canadian minds and institutions the world over respond to increased calls for repatriation, conversations about the creation, use and dissemination of archaeological knowledge must be opened and used to inform new perspectives for the next generation of archaeologists.
Join archaeologists Leo Pettipas and Amelia Fay, Conservator Amanda McLeod and the NCTR’s Raymond Frogner in a discussion of the social challenges that
Canadian archaeologists must face and how students of the discipline can be better respond to those challenges. Admission is FREE and light refreshments
are available.
