President’s Message – Summer 2021

The past few months have been busy ones for the CAA. Our virtual conference was followed quickly by the news from Te’kemlups te Secwepemc First Nation of the identification of unmarked graves at the former Kamloops Indian Residential School. The CAA rapidly created a Working Group on Unmarked Graves, which brings together archaeologists from across the country who have experience in remote sensing and in working with Indigenous communities to help them find their missing children. The working group, chaired by Kisha Supernant, is developing informational resources to help communities make informed decisions about whether and how they wish to proceed with investigations. The first of these are posted on our website, with more on the way. My thanks to everyone on the working group for their commitment to this difficult, but important work.

Read on for a long overdue update on other CAA activities. We are seeking volunteers to fill a number of important roles - see the bottom of this message for ways to become involved.
