Global Dialogue: Safeguarding Indigenous Heritage in the Anthropocene: Examples from northern Canada and Chile

Program: How do Indigenous peoples perceive the impacts of climate change and settler colonialism on their heritage? And how can these understandings help inform better practices for safeguarding Indigenous heritage in the geological epoch of the Anthropocene? This talk will explore these questions as they relate to Rebecca’s comparative case studies from her PhD research with the Dene peoples in the Northwest Territories, Canada, and the Aymara and Quechua peoples in northern Chile. Here, she will focus particularly on the themes of food practices and language.


Presenter: Rebecca Haboucha recently submitted her PhD in Archaeology with a specialization in Heritage Studies at the University of Cambridge. Her other degrees include an MPhil in Archaeology from the University of Cambridge and BA Honours in Anthropology from McGill University. Rebecca’s doctoral research examines how to sustainably preserve Indigenous cultural heritage impacted by climate change in the Global North and South. She has worked with the Dehcho First Nations in subarctic Canada, as well as with the Quechua and Aymara peoples in northern Chile. Her other research interest includes the heritagization of food, particularly in relation to minorities within larger cultural and religious minorities. Her most recent publication is ‘On the Edge of the Anthropocene? Modern Climate Change and the Practice of Archaeology’ (with J. E. Meharry and M. Comer, Archaeological Review from Cambridge, 2017).
