Title: Building Relationships between Indigenous Archaeological Monitors (IAMs) and Field Archaeologists: Present Concerns and Future Considerations

Abstract: In the context of Cultural Resource Management (CRM), archaeologists and IAMs are brought together with differing objectives. The purpose of professional archaeologists working in Ontario is to assess the archaeological significance of areas targeted for potential development on behalf of proponents (i.e. development stakeholders). In contrast, IAMs are hired and appointed by First Nations to represent indigenous interests on lands of their traditional territories. To facilitate a better understanding of both perspectives, the session organizers of this workshop will guide discussions about a range of topics to inform and foster relationships between IAMs and field archaeologists. Highlighted issues will include potential training or advanced training opportunities for IAMs, differing IAM field participation responsibilities, career opportunities, health and safety, and respect of Indigenous Traditional Knowledge (ITK).
