Mobile presentation and soundwalk with archaeologist Dr. Eldon Yellowhorn, activist Carleen Thomas, and artist/composer 
Gabriel Saloman

The last iteration of a series three soundwalks connecting SFU Galleries' Through A Window: Visual Art and SFU 1965-2015 exhibition to the development of soundwork and the World Soundscape Project at SFU. This walk will encompass sound, site and narrative in a consideration of the intersecting histories that define the SFU campus and the area around Burnaby Mountain.

The three walk guides will facilitate a public walk looking at a "People's History" of the fraught relationship between Burnaby Mountain and the petroleum industry.

He is a faculty member at Simon Fraser University where he teaches archaeology and First Nations studies. His research interests include palaeoIndian research, communal hunting and northern plains archaeology, archaeoastronomy and the emerging field of indigenous archaeology. 

Carleen Thomas has served multiple terms as an elected member of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation (TWN) governing Council. She has represented the TWN on various advisory bodies related to education, policing and health, including the aboriginal advisory boards of North Vancouver School District #44, Capilano University, and Simon Fraser University. She is a member of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation Sacred Trust Initiative – their official opposition to Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion.

Gabriel Saloman is a musician, composer and artist. Since 2003 he has collaborated with Red 76 on such projects such as "Fellow Travellers" for Manifesta 8 in Murcia, Spain; "Surplus Seminar" at the Walker Art Center; and "Counter-culture as Pedagogy" for CCA's Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art. Saloman received an MFA at Simon Fraser University in 2012.
