Clam gardens call into question hunter-gatherer past

The Canadian Press covered a story this weekend on the discovery of an expansive system of historic clam gardens along the Pacific Northwest coast, which contributes to a growing body of work negating long-held beliefs about First Nations as "heedless hunter-gatherers." Nancy Turner spoke about the idea of First Nations as foragers. CBC News, Huffington Post, Montreal Gazette, The Province and Vancouver Sun amongst other outlets picked up the CP story.  CBC (Source: CP)
