Métis Hivernants: The Women of the Buffalo Lake Overwintering Community

January 28

Dawn Wambold is an active member of the Métis Nation of Alberta and an MA student at the University of Alberta. As a scholar at the Institute of Prairie and Indigenous Archaeology, she is honoured to be able to tell the stories of her ancestors using archaeology. Her research focus is on the lives of Métis women at bison hunting winter camps. It is her hope that this research will help others know these remarkable women and how they, along with the men in their families, made their homes in the lands now known as Western Canada.
