First Nations Engagement

Timmins Martelle Heritage Consultants Inc. (TMHC) works to establish, maintain and reinforce partnerships with First Nations in Ontario on a variety of issues, including:

  • the development of websites and other teaching resources to promote cultural awareness
  • developing protocols for archaeological investigations within traditional territories
  • repatriation of human burials, sacred objects and artifact collections
  • establishing artifact repositories
  • negotiations with government concerning cultural heritage sites on First Nations lands
  • investigation of archaeological sites that contribute to an understanding of First Nations history
  • training First Nations community members in archaeological field, lab and curation methods
  • and collecting and preserving oral history and traditional knowledge.

When working on behalf of their development clients, TMHC meets and then strives to exceed government-mandated First Nations engagement.
