The State of Archaeology and First Nations
R. Kris Nahrgang
The state of Ontario archaeology and its relations with First Nations communities is criminal! Did all
archaeologists train to be consultants only? Where is the research? Must we walk ever faster over fields seeking
only the larger sites? Are we solely the products of the developers’ environment? Is this what archaeologists
train for? These are some of the questions that come to mind when I think of archaeologists.
