DAVIES, Michelle Tari – is an archaeologist with the Nunatsiavut Government, based out of Nain, Labrador. After completing her MA on the 18th century practices of Inuit Women at Memorial University, the Labrador Wild drew her to the northernmost community on the coast. Her position includes a mixture of field research and data management, policy writing, community engagement and more. Michelle is currently pursuing her PhD, which involves recording the stories and memories of relocated residents from Hebron through family archaeology. This presentation will guide the untrained eye to seek the traces of past peoples while out on the land: canoeing, kayaking or hiking will often result in a newly recorded site or two.
