Project title: Ethnographic Mapping and Indigenous Landscapes in the Gulf Islands

Department: Anthropology

Faculty supervisor: Dr. Brian Thom

"This project, in partnership with members of the Hul’q’umi’num’ Lands and Resources Society, will work to take a large but disparate dataset of Indigenous place names, land use, cultural landscapes, collected over the past 10 years, and make it more accessible for community use. The challenge will be to establish a common database structure, work through quality control, and identify candidates for public release, while respecting Indigenous data sovereignty goals."
