The Elephant Hill Wildfire, one of the most destructive fires in BC in 2017, has made it easier for archeologists to look for previously hidden Indigenous sites. Joanne Hammond, an independent archeologist, is working for the Skeetchestn Indian Band, a First Nation whose traditional territory is located west of Kamloops. Her team has already found around 100 archeological sites when they normally find only 25 per year.
