REGINA INDIAN INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL TO UNDERGO ARCHAEOLGICAL SURVEY Oct. 30

An archaeological survey of the private lands east of the Regina Indian Industrial (RIIS) site will be taking place beginning at 9 A.M. on Friday October 30, 2015. The survey will be conducted in anticipation of possible future development in the area.

Lisa Hein from WSP Canada Ltd. and Kim Cloutier from Stantec Consulting Ltd. will be conducting this collaborative pro bono survey for the RIIS Commemorative Association Inc..

This opportunity will potentially allow us to learn more about the Regina Indian Industrial School and the students who attended there. The RIIS Commemorative Association Inc. is grateful to the current landowners for granting the permission to access their property for this historic task.
