Ivan Vella outlines that understanding the history and culture of the Cheslatta Carrier Nation is a vital step towards reconciliation efforts.  His perspective was featured in a LinkedIn post by Rio Tinto on partnering with the Cheslatta Carrier Nation in British Columbia to support Indigenous-led archeological research. 

“This archeological endeavour has the potential to enhance our understanding of the history of human occupation in the Nechako Watershed and beyond. ”
