54th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Archaeological Association

About the Logo

This year's logo was designed by Métis artist Kim Stewart, who spent much of her childhood in Alberta and now lives in British Columbia. Kim's art explores Métis identity and the connections between land and people. Kim works in a variety of media; her blankets, paintings, hide works, and installations have appeared in galleries across Canada. The logo contains flower and berry elements traditionally depicted in Métis beadwork. The circles also represent different entities coming together in a shared space, which reflects the 2022 CAA/ACA and ASA theme: “Where Communities Meet.” These design elements are set against a projectile point background to symbolize the archaeological community in Western Canada, which is excited to host this gathering.
