In collaboration with the Hakai Beach Institute, this 15-credit (full semester) field school takes place in the spectacular Hakai Area, an ancestral homeland of the Heiltsuk and Wuikinuvx Nations on the central coast of British Columbia. The region has a rich Aboriginal history that spans at least 10,000 years and includes some of the earliest known archaeological sites in British Columbia. This is also one of the most scenic places in the world, with plentiful marine and terrestrial wildlife and rugged coastlines, also renowned for its world class fishing opportunities. It is not unusual for field school participants to see wildlife such as humpback whales, orcas (killer whales), dolphins, black and grizzly bears, deer, eagles and much more.
