Wild Archaeology

The archaeological record of the First Peoples of North America is scattered, fragmented, and could be lost forever. Guided by Indigenous archaeologist Dr. Rudy Reimer (Squamish), and two adventure-loving co-hosts Jenifer Brousseau (Ojibway/French) and Jacob Pratt (Dakota/ Saulteaux), we are taken on a quest through the mountains, waterways, plains, and Arctic landscapes of Canada’s ancient archaeological record to discover first-hand the untold story of the original peoples of North America. For the first time in archaeological history, fifteen thousand years of human inhabitation of this land is vividly brought to life through thirteen episodes of Wild Archaeology.

"From high alpine steep to underwater deep in Lake Huron and far north of Inuvik, APTN's Wild Archaeology​ investigates 15,000 (or more) years of human history that colonial record books ignored...the show is a fresh, rugged reassessment of Indigenous technology, arts and culture as well as an adventure for anyone interested in the great outdoors."
