Washing Away: The Erosion of Archaeological Legacy

June 20 - 18:30 - 20:30

The erosion of shorelines is presenting as a global challenge. This is of particular concern for Canada — which has the largest coastline in the world — and especially for Indigenous nations. Important traces of cultural heritage and legacy are being literally washed away. What exactly are the challenges we face, and what strategies have proven successful? Join us for this important discussion, as we celebrate National Indigenous Day.
