= Préserver le patrimoine autochtone : approches techniques et traditionnelles : actes du symposium 2007
In September 2007, the Canadian Conservation Institute hosted an international symposium Preserving Aboriginal Heritage: Technical and Traditional Approaches. The goal of the symposium was to provide an opportunity for Aboriginal people and conservation specialists to learn from one another — in an atmosphere of mutual respect — about traditional, technical, ethical, and intangible aspects of the conservation of Aboriginal material culture. This book of proceedings reflects the structure and objectives of the symposium, and provides useful and practical information on collaboration and the benefits of technical and traditional approaches. It contains the text of all papers in the language of presentation, an abstract for each paper in English and French, and the text of all posters in English and French. It will be useful for anyone involved in the preservation of Aboriginal heritage.
