Our Team Member Pamela Klassen and her team of student researchers (PhD students Meaghan Weatherdon, Judith Brunton, Kaleigh McLelland and undergraduate students Russell Turner, Erin Ray, and Tamim Mansour, all in the University of Toronto Research Opportunity Program) recently returned from a trip to the Rainy River where they presented the work-in-progress of their digital project, Story Nations, to community members at the Rainy River First Nations. Hosted by Art Hunter and Kylie Hanson of the Rainy River First Nations, the team also attended the annual Pow-Wow and visited the Kay-Nah-Chi-Wah-Nung Historical Centre, home to the largest concentration of ancient burial mounds in Canada.
