Advances In Archaeological Practice is a quarterly, full-color, digital journal devoted to sharing creative solutions to challenges in the practice of archaeology globally.
Special Issue Vol. 9, Issue 3: 'NDN Communities and Remote Sensing Techniques'
"This special issue focuses on contemporary practices of remote sensing, broadly conceived; including lidar, ground-penetrating radar, and forensic canine support. The experience of contributors working in NDN communities in the United States and Canada has lessons for those working in communities around the globe. This issue was finalized just prior to the announcement of the identification of 215 unmarked graves by Canada’s Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc First Nation at the Kamloops Indian Residential School.
"This finding has been followed by additional remote sensing inquiries accompanied by announcements of additional identification of First Nations, Native American/Indigenous youth burials across Canadian and United States Residential Schools, the numbers increasing as inquiries continue. Serving as one example of the traumatic and sensitive nature of remote sensing, this issue invites archaeologists, contractors, and geophysicists in both public and private sectors to reexamine potential impacts of work that has often been categorized as non-invasive, highlighting the benefits of remote sensing praxis combined with Indigenous, and Indigenous centered frameworks, as guiding principles of collaboration, relationship building, and a new professional standard."
