Darcy Mathews talks about First Nations' Cemeteries with the Globe and Mail

January 10, 2015 - Dr. Mathews has been studying First Nations’ burial sites for the past 20 years. Privately owned Grace Islet is such a site and is the centre of controversy as the owner was given permission to build there. Dr. Mathews talked with the Globe and Mail about the problem with the provincial labelling of burial sites as heritage sites, which are not protected in the same way as cemeteries.  

Dr. Darcy Mathews is a recent graduate of the University of Victoria’s Department of Anthropology PhD program. He is currently a Post-Doc with Dr. Nancy Turner in Environmental Studies and a teaching instructor in the Department of Anthropology.
