Dana Lepofsky is a professor of  archaeology from Simon Fraser University.  She, along with her students and members of Tla’amin (Sliammon) First Nation, have spent several years uncovering the past.

Dana’s talk focused on the results of the Sliammon & Simon Fraser University Heritage and Archaeology Project.   This ambitious and ongoing effort is systematically creating a picture of the rich and sophisticated culture of the ancient people who populated the coast.

The Powell River Peak has offered more  insight about her work.  You can learn more about the work  here and here.
