The Institute of Prairie and Indigenous Archaeology (IPIA) is an Indigenous-led institute with a commitment to continuing to support Indigenous-engaged archaeological research, to developing pedagogical approaches to integrating Indigenous ways of knowing and being into archaeological teaching and training, and to changing cultural heritage policies in response to the needs of Indigenous communities in western Canada. The IPIA is the first of its kind in Canada and the first Institute focused on Indigenous archaeology in the world.
