Indigenous Engagement

In Ontario, 80 percent of all archaeological sites are the result of past Indigenous activity, such as hunting and fishing camps, villages, gathering places, portages and burial sites.   As such, any archaeological assessments undertaken in traditional territories must address the interests and concerns of any relevant Indigenous communities.

Past Recovery has developed a strong working relationship with the Algonquins of Ontario, the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne, the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte, as well as the Williams Treaty First Nations across Eastern Ontario including the Mississaugas of Alderville First Nation, Hiawatha First Nation, and Curve Lake First Nation.  We regularly engage members of these communities to contribute to projects within their traditional territories.
