Tk̓emlúps te Secwépemc in partnership with the Canadian Archaeological Association and the Institute of Prairie and Indigenous Archaeology is offering a free webinar on best practices in remote sensing and grave detection. Ground Penetrating Radar, a gold standard of practice in remote sensing has come to the forefront of dialogue around detecting unmarked graves and burial sites on the grounds of former Indian Residential Schools.

Experts from the Canadian Archaeological Association and the Institute of Prairie and Indigenous Archaeology will be participating.
