Point Us in the Right Direction Book Campaign

We’re raising funds to publish “Saskatchewan Projectile Points: An Indigenous Perspective and Guidebook” (working title). Donors giving $100 or more will receive a free copy of the book; all donors will be acknowledged inside the book. 
Visit our profile on Canada Helps to donate. Our campaign will remain active until September 30. You may also call the office or mail in a donation at any time. 
This comprehensive guidebook will describe:
• projectile point styles recovered, dates, attribute list, geographical range, with actual size colour photos;
• Indigenous perspectives on artistry of points; extensive knowledge system of stone material properties and animals hunted; connection to land; and
• current legislation and regulations governing archaeological heritage, and importance of responsible and respectful stewardship.
