Indigenous Engagement

point from Gananoque

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 First Nations territories must address the interests and concerns of the relevant indigenous community.

Past Recovery has developed a strong working relationship with the Algonquins of Ontario, as well as the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne, and we regularly engage members of their communities to contribute to projects within their traditional territories.
