UINR and Mi'kmaq Guardians participated in an Archaeology Training session with Heather MacLeod-Leslie from Mi'kmaq Rights Initiative last week.

We learned what artifacts we may come across in our work in and around the Bras d'Or, what to look for, and how to care for artifacts respectfully. It is important for us to understand and follow KMKNO's regulations and protocols with respect to archaeology.

Here are a few photos from our field day.
