Pikangikum Cultural Landscape Documentation Guide
Iain Davidson-Hunt and R. Michael O’Flaherty, with contributions from Janene Shearer, Catie Burlando, Andrew Chapeskie, Nathan Deutsch, Oliver Hill, Andrew Miller, Paddy Peters, Michael R. Sanders, Whitefeather Forest Elders Steering Group. 2010. Winnipeg, Manitoba: Aboriginal Issues Press, University of Manitoba.

The purpose of this guide is to outline a field survey approach to documenting natural and cultural features in the traditional land use area of Pikangikum First Nation in a manner that supports the vision of the Whitefeather Forest Research Cooperative agreement. The approach outlined here has been chosen because it allows researchers to produce documentation results that are linked to GPS data and can be used for a variety of planning purposes that involve Pikangikum people, and in particular in planning for the Whitefeather Forest and Woodland Caribou Provincial Park.
