54th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Archaeological Association

About the Theme


Our theme is “Where Communities Meet/Un lieu de rencontre”, reflecting the changing practice of archaeology in Canada, the archaeological interest in how groups have interacted in the past, and the deep history of Edmonton. In Cree, Edmonton is known as amiskwacîwâskahikan and is situated on Treaty 6 territory, as well as the Métis homeland, and has been a place where Indigenous communities have gathered since time immemorial.
