July 22 | Best Practices in Remote Sensing and Grave Detection

July 22@9:00 am - 11:00 am

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.

Understanding that the Indian Residential Schools goes beyond First Nations, but also directly impacts Inuit and Métis, Tk̓emlúps te Secwépemc along with the Canadian Archaeological Association and the Institute of Prairie and Indigenous Archaeology are inviting all interested Indigenous communities and organizations to attend this free webinar to learn more about remote sensing in the context of grave detection. Experts from the Canadian Archaeological Association and the Institute of Prairie and Indigenous Archaeology will be participating. Tk̓emlúps te Secwépemc will be sharing their current experience as they follow the evidence of survivor oral tellings and work with the science of remote sensing to bring to light the truth of unmarked graves surrounding the Kamloops Indian Residential School.

This is a free webinar open to First Nation, Métis and Inuit communities and organizations.

Thursday July 22, 2021 from 9:00 – 11 am Pacific
