Archaeology video onscreen

 

The Newfoundland Archaeological Heritage Outreach Program (NAHOP) will present a video screening of Archaeology and Traditional Knowledge in Labrador on Thursday, Dec. 4, at 8 p.m. in the Arts and Administration Building, rooms A-1043 and A-1046.

Archaeology and Traditional Knowledge in Labrador details the relationship community members have with archaeological research sites in a number of regions in Labrador. The video documentary profiles archaeology sites near Sheshatshiu, Cartwright, Makkovik, and the former community of Nachvak Fjord. In the video, community members and youth speak about the importance of their past and the skills they obtain participating in archaeology projects.

The video was produced by Rhonda Buckley, NAHOP, and Fred Hollinghurst, Distance Education Learning Technologies.

Archaeology and Traditional Knowledge in Labrador was funded with assistance from the Department of Industry, Trade and Rural Development, South Eastern Aurora Development Corporation, NAHOP, Parks Canada and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC.

Archaeology and Traditional Knowledge in Labrador was produced by the Newfoundland Archaeological Heritage Outreach Program and Distance Education Learning Technologies, Memorial University of Newfoundland.

The screening is open to the public. Parking is available in Lot 15. Reception to follow.
