Dating as early as 1769, these underused archival records document the survey, settlement, and sustainable use of Crown Lands. Among many other things, the CLSR collection documents Canada’s Indigenous history and culture such as the distribution of language groups, treaty rights, the location of Residential Schools and Indian reserves, and Indigenous land use and occupation. Through these, we can see the history of Indian reserves, National Parks, military bases, railway development, the fur trade, and the Arctic. As we will see, the records also help tell the story of the significant Indigenous contribution to the Klondike Gold Rush.</em></p> 2018-07-23T00:00:00-04:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Preparing a two day GIS workshop for Arts and Humanities researchers 2018-11-18T09:31:24-05:00 Joel Rivard Sarah Simpkin <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">In winter 2018, we were approached to lead a two day (12 hour) workshop for arts and humanities researchers as part of the </span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Digital Humanities Summer Institute: Technologies East </span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">(DHSITE) conference hosted by the University of Ottawa.
