Stó:lō Ethnohistory Field School

This past spring I participated in the Stó:lō ethnohistory field school, run by Stó:lō 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!
