Klahoose First Nation is investigating the discovery of a Cultural Modified Tree in our traditional territory. This find is a significant marker found by workers in the area.
Treaty Manager and Klahoose Councillor Kathy Francis has been working with an archeologist and the Archaeology Branch to determine the details of the find and to identify the next steps in preserving this important piece of Klahoose history.
Klahoose Forestry Manager Kim Olney has secured the area and preserved the location until a solid plan is developed. There is no access to this area without written approval by Klahoose Council.
Chief James Delorme said, “This unique find is evidence that our ancestors were active in many areas of the traditional territory. I am excited for our Nation as this is a truly remarkable piece of our history and will continue the pride we have in our community.”
