In Canada Federal Government law requires that large earth-disturbance developments consult with the pertinent aboriginal groups who have historic connections with that location. To test to see how well this is being done, in the
spring of 2013 we spent 2 weeks unercover with the Tera
Environmental Consulting archaeological field crew to assess their work. What we looked ofr was site location, identification and reporting, site interpretation, Administration and management, consultation with aboriginal groups, Crew preparation and competence, interaction with aboriginal memembers. They failed on all counts. Consulta-tion was neglegible and ineffective; stapp underqualified;
training nonexistent; proceedures unprofessional; 80% of sites were not identified or recorded; interpretation poor;
interaction was poor at best. We include assessments and field notes and interpretive of a major site ignored by the
consultant. 142 pages; photos; maps.
