All My Relations – Ascension presents archeologist Dr. Ian Badgley, Heritage Program National Capital Commission (on Zoom).
Indigenous people have gathered along the shores of the three rivers that meet in the Ottawa-Gatineau area for thousands of years. Archeological digs in the National Capital Region find many artifacts dating back 1,500 to 2,500 years, but such artifacts here and across the country are in danger of being lost to shoreline erosion due to climate change. That loss jeopardizes contemporary Indigenous rights and land claims and diminishes our understanding of Indigenous history.
Come learn about the connections between land, history, creation care, and present-day justice for Indigenous peoples.
