Shannon Landrie-Crossland will be our speak and presenting on recent work at Round Prairie settlement near Saskatoon. Her talk is titled, “Métis Traditional Knowledge on Land Use and Occupancy Study for the Round Prairie Settlement Land Base Areas”. All are welcome to attend!
Abstract: This project was initially developed through the Federal Government’s Duty to Consult process with Enbridge Pipeline. In November 2014 Shannon served as an Aboriginal Consultation Consultant for her community. In March 2015, she applied to the National Energy Board for intervener status on the Enbridge Line 3 Replacement Program and in April 2015 the application was approved. In May 2015, Shannon developed a Métis Traditional Knowledge on Land Use and Occupancy Study for the Round Prairie Settlement land use area(s). In June 2015, the Round Prairie Cemetery had a Ground Penetrating Radar Survey completed on the Cemetery grounds. In September 2016, three archeological surveys were completed on a possible Overwintering/Hivernant Site of the Round Prairie Settlement Buffalo Hunters.
“This study has allowed me to bring my professional skills and experience into my community. Personally, this study is also helping me reconnect with my ancestors, my history and my traditional land base.” — Shannon Landrie-Crossland, Independent Métis Consultation Consultant
