Title: A Cultural Analysis of Faunal Remains From Three Archaeological Sites in Hesquiat Harbour, BC

Year: 1980

Author(s): Sheila Gay Calvert

Type: Academic Thesis

Description:
This study examines the proposition that among the prehistoric hunter-gatherers of Hesquiat Harbour, west coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, the geographical area exploited, and hence animal resource selection, was controlled by land use patterns limiting local groups to specific tracts of territory. It suggest that the interaction of the land use system with the environmental diversity of Hesquiat Harbour creates a sub-regional level of resource specialization recognizable in archaeological sites as variation in emphasis on animals from different habitats among the faunal assemblages. A specific proposition, developed from pertinent ethnographic and environmental information, relates land use patterns with a specific pattern of diversity among the faunal assemblages from three archaeological sites, DiSo 1, DiSo 9, and DiSo 16. The emphasis on different habitats one would expect to find at each site was predicted. The faunal assemblages, comprising 49,770 skeletal elements and 135,777.4 grams of shell, are described and compared, using relative frequency of skeletal element count and shell weight. The differences and similarities are discussed in relation to sampling and preservation factors, local environmental change, season of exploitation, change through time in material culture and habitats exploited. A statistically significant association of assemblages with different habitat emphases is found to account for the major proportion of the inter-assemblage variation. Observed patterns of habitat emphases are compared with those predicted. Actual emphases in the assemblages of DiSo 16 and DiSo 1 are positively correlated with the predicted patterns , but those of DiSo 9 differ. The differences are consistent with demonstrated local environmental change and a wider territory of exploitation. The analysis suggests that a simple, autonomous local group level of sociopolitical organization was present in Hesquiat Harbour at least 1,200 years ago and demonstrates that the natural environment defined by socio-cultural organizational factors is an important influence on regional faunal assemblage patterning on the Northwest Coast.

Title: Archaeological Research in Nootka Territory: Barkley Sound to the Alberni Valley

Year: 1980

Author(s): Alan D. McMillan

Type: Journal Article

Description:
The Nootka were the native occupants of Vancouver Island's rugged west coast and the adjacent tip of the Olympic Peninsula. Their highly maritime way of life, including the whale hunt and its associated ritualism, has attracted considerable scholarly attention. Prior to the recent expansion of archaeological activity on the Northwest Coast, models of prehistory were primarily drawn from the relatively extensive ethnographic literature. The Nootka figured prominently in such schemes, being seen by several writers as retaining relatively intact the basic patterns of Northwest Coast culture. The prehistoric development to this ethnographic culture was, however, virtually unknown. While little archaeological research has yet taken place in Nootka territory, in a few locations a picture is beginning to emerge. In particular, the excavations at Yuquot and Hesquiat on Vancouver Island and at Ozette on the Olympic Peninsula are providing detailed local chronological sequences. This article describes results of field-work carried out in the summers of 1973 to 1975, directed by the author and Denis St. Claire.

Title: Archaeological Investigations in the Alberni Valley

Year: 1975

Author(s): Alan McMIllan; Denis E. St. Claire

Type: Journal Article

Description:
Introduction: This report is intended as a descriptive summary of archaeological research directed by the authors near Port Alberni, British Columbia in the summer on 1973. Fifteen weeks of field work yielded the first excavated data on the prehistory of the Alberni Valley. One of the research goals was to investigate archaeologically the published comments of Franz Boas (1890) and Edward Sapir (1913, 1915) indicating, on liguistic and ethnographic evidence, that Nootka culture has only recently displaced an earlier Gulf of Georgia orientation in this area. This article deals only with the 1973 excavations although subsequent work has been carried out by the authors on the same site.
