The Other Self of Landscape: Considering the Temporality of Lekwammen Territory
AbstractIn the past decade, academic publications relating to indigenous archaeology have been numerous yet, rather than writing an archaeology which integrates indigenous knowledge, most publications tend to be about indigenous archaeology—its practice and criticisms. With reference to Central Coast Salish perspectives of time and space within the local landscape, this paper considers the past in the past and the implications such a point of view can have for approaching and interpreting the archaeological record. It is argued that consideration of the temporal dimension of the cultural landscape is more in keeping with indigenous perspectives and can provide for challenging research and a richer understanding of archaeological findings.
