In Episode 18, Jenny is joined by archaeologist Mirjana McIntyre, for a serious discussion about working with First Nations in their territories. About involving, listening and acknowledging what Indigenous communities want. About the importance of developing deep and respectful relationships. What meaningful consultation really means. And tangible ideas to empower First Nations, ensuring that they have sovereignty over their land, sacred sites and archaeological finds.
This begins with understanding and acknowledging the impact that colonial systems have had and still have on communities, and our responsibility as allies to move the practice of archaeology forward, to put culture and heritage first.
