About this presentation

Ts’msyen and Coast Salish people have a long history of managing and stewarding the lived landscape. Dr. Armstrong will combine archaeological evidence with rich, community-based history to showcase Indigenous Forest Gardens: relict ecosystems of managed fruit and nut trees and herbaceous root foods that continue to grow at archaeological village sites today.
