Title: Archaeological Practice in Ontario: Your history, under your care and control

Your archaeological history is a non-renewable resource that belongs to your community; join SVS Archaeologist Cristina McCoy as she discusses how Cultural Resource Management (CRM) Archaeology in Ontario needs to change to support Indigenous self determination– and how that change can be accomplished. 

Speaker: Cristina McCoy

Cristina McCoyCristina McCoy is an Archaeologist and Regulatory Specialist who works closely with SVS clients to effectively navigate systems, allowing Nations to achieve the goals that matter to them. Her focus is on ensuring that the clients she works with have early-stage engagement and active participation throughout development projects happening on their land.

Cristina was first inspired to work alongside Indigenous communities in 2016 after she was given the opportunity to work on the archaeological Inuvialuit site of Kuukpak as part of Dr. Max Friesen’s Arctic CHAR (Arctic Cultural Heritage at Risk) Project in the Northwest Territories. It was there that she was able to witness firsthand the intimate and deeply personal connection Indigenous communities have to the environment and to their lands, waters, and histories.

Cristina holds an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Archaeology and History from the University of Toronto. Cristina will complete her Master of Science from the University of Toronto in 2023, where her research is focused on cultural value determinations, heritage legislation, land development laws, and the intersections of cultural resource management ethics with reconciliation efforts and Indigenous Rights activism. Cristina is also an academically and professionally trained zooarchaeologist and faunal analyst.
