This past spring I participated in the Sto:lo ethnohistory field school, run by Sto:lo Nation, USask, and UVic. It was hugely enriching, both personally and professionally – I met a lot of amazing people, read some great history, and worked collaboratively with others to prepare my own report, the biography of a canoe carved by Cheif William Sepass (KHHalserten) in 1915.
Here are a few photos!
