Research Theme: Southern Athapaskan (Dene) Migration Patterns

Principal Researcher: Dr. Bryan C. Gordon, Canadian Museum of History

Study Objective: To discover new evidence of Dene presence throughout a proposed corridor, extending from the Canadian Barrenlands and Prairies to the Four Corners. Initial analysis involves the visual matching of Dene artifacts with similar items located in local museum collections. A further assessment phase will attempt to determine the provenance, or likelihood that such found items were manufactured, carried, or traded toolsets of the Dene people.
