In the summer of 2017, the Elephant Hill wildfire burned almost 200,000 km2 of interior forests and grasslands. Post-fire recovery has offered First Nations and archaeologists an unprecedented opportunity to find new archaeological sites and observe the recovery of the landscape from the point of view of historic Indigenous land use. This class will take you on a virtual heritage tour of the wildfire area, with a focus on how landscape-level archaeology is helping us challenge conventional ideas of how Secwepemc ancestors lived for millennia before colonization.
