February Speaker Series with Bill Hanlon: The Ice Man from British Columbia

February 22

Free / By Donation

One day in August 1999, three men were hunting sheep in Northern BC when they came across something unexpected: human remains and sundry artifacts – a hat, a knife, a bag – emerging from a melting glacier. Archeologists and Indigenous representatives were called in and determined that the remains were of an Indigenous boy in his late teens who had died at least 150 years earlier. Members of the local Champagne and Aishihik First Nations named the unknown man Kwäday Dän Ts’inchi: Long Ago Person Found.

Join us at the Museum at 6 pm on Thursday, February 22nd to hear the story of this discovery of North America’s oldest preserved human remains from Bill Hanlon, one of the hunters who found them. Entry by donation.
