PR – Fall Speaker Series: Archaeology on Xwe’etay/Lasqueti with Dana Lepofsky
October 11, 2022 @ 6:30 pm$5
While considered off the beaten path today, the archaeology of Xwe’etay/Lasqueti Island demonstrates that the island’s position in the middle of the Salish Sea meant that it was a center for a large and thriving permanent community, with wide social and economic connections. As part of the Xwe’etay/Lasqueti Archaeology Project (www.lasquetiarc.ca ) we are learning much about the rich Indigenous heritage of the island. In this talk, we will present some of what we have learned about the island’s archaeological record, and also talk about how to best honor and protect these precious insights into the past — so they are preserved for the future. In person or via zoom (for this talk only).
