In the summer of 1999, three hunters discovered ancient human remains at the edge of a melting glacier in British Columbia?s Tatshenshini-Alsek Park, which is within the boundaries of traditional territory of the Champagne and Aishihik First Nations. Academics, cultural experts and First Nation members set out to learn more about the biological and cultural characteristics of the Long Ago Found Person and the artefacts found with him. In spring 2008, Champagne and Aishihik First Nations researchers and scientific investigators from eight universities and cultural institutions in Canada and five other countries presented their research at the Kwday Dn Ts?nchi Symposium.
