Approaches to Indigenous Community History: Mapping the Cemetery at Soowahlie First Nation

  • Jill Levine


This paper is a result of my work at the Ethnohistory Field School at the University of Victoria in 2019. I partnered with Soowahlie First Nation who asked the Field School to produce an updated map of the cemetery on their reserve. The work outlines what I found to be the most useful and relevant practices for researching and mapping Stó:lō community cemeteries. The paper also includes a narrative history of the cemetery itself and its role in the community.
