E-mail Print PDF

We are working with the Western Washington University's Burke Museum for the return of remains taken from Pender Island in 1944. We are also working with Simon Fraser University Museum of Ethnology for the return of the remains of 150 of our people.  BCR’s agreeing to work with Simon Fraser University, the Burke Museum at the University of Washinghton and the Tseycum First Nation on these repatriation projects are now before Chief and Council.
