Lunch & Learn – Reconciling the Past for the Future: Unsettling Métis as Mixed in the Archaeological Record

with Kisha Supernant, associate director of the Institute of Prairie Archaeology and associate professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Alberta’s North campus.

Often thought of as a mixed, hybrid group of people, Canadian Métis are now starting to be identified by scholars through their personhood and nationhood rather than on racial bias. In this lecture, Kisha will examine how this racial bias relates to archeological research and will weave together research and storytelling to undo this previous understanding in an effort towards reconciliation.
