All My Relations – Ascension presents archeologist Ian Badgley, Heritage Program National Capital Commission and Albert Dumont, Algonquin Spiritual Advisor.
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.
