Tsleil-Waututh has been successful in our grant application to acquire laboratory equipment and supplies to outfit our archaeological laboratory and repository. For decades, Tsleil-Waututh has been building capacity in our Archaeology and Cultural Heritage Program in the Treaty, Lands and Resources department. We recently installed repository cabinets and developed a laboratory space. The acquisition of laboratory equipment will allow us to better care for Tsleil-Waututh cultural heritage, conduct archaeology laboratory analyses in-house, provide training for the Tsleil-Waututh community, and reconnect the Tsleil-Waututh community members with their cultural history. This is a step in our continued efforts to regain sovereignty over Tsleil-Waututh cultural heritage.
