Description

Grace Islet, part of the large ancient village of Shiya’hwt waht at the head of Ganges Harbour, has long been a recorded archaeological site. People are demanding that our government show respect and basic human decency by halting construction of a residence directly over burial grounds, and the people repeat their demand for meaningful consultation with First Nations. In 2007, an archaeological impact assessment confirmed two burial sites and as many as 15 burial cairns.
