Studies of physical parameters of Indigenous artifacts; collecting and preserving the relating oral stories

April 21, 2020

Dr. Sardarli leads the project “Studies of physical parameters of Indigenous artifacts; collecting and preserving the relating oral stories” supported by Heritage Canada within the Museum Assistance Program. The fieldwork and interviewing process and carbon dating measurements of artifacts have been completed. Ten Elders and Knowledge Keepers have been interviewed. Two workshops were organized in Pelican Narrows and Sturgeon Lake. Researchers from FNUniv (Arzu Sardarli, Ida Swan, Leta Kingfisher), University of Regina, University of Saskatchewan and Royal Saskatchewan Museum, and four Indigenous university students participate in the project. Presently, the team is working on the statistical analysis of experimental results and transcribing the interviews.
