In the first week of August HAT Staff had the honor of being invited once again out with the Scia’new First Nation Youth Field team for a day at the beach with elder Henry Chipps. Henry Chipps is not only full of wisdom about the land and its history, but he is also the resident archaeologist. With his guidance and knowledge he lead the youth though an archaeological dig where less than a foot beneath the soil the evidence of long term site use was uncovered once again.
It was an incredible day full of discoveries, conversation, salty water and sandy strawberries. It is such a pleasure to work with Youth out in nature and a great privilege to learn from a respected elder in the community. We look forward to seeing you all again soon.
