Abstract: This report presents the results of the two seasons of archaeological fieldwork (2004 and 2005) carried out as part of the Stó:lō Pithouse Settlement Mapping and Testing Project, one of several major segments of the multi-year, multi-disciplinary ‘Fraser Valley Project’ ( Lepofsky et al 2003). Eight archaeological sites were included in the present study: Eyxel (DiRi-48), ‘John Mack Slough’ (DhRl-T1), Qithyil Island (DhRl-15; also known as the Scowlitz Site), Shxw’ow’hamel (DiRj-30), Sqwa:la (DhRl-6), Sxwóxwiymelh ‘South’ (DiRj-1; formerly known as the ‘Katz’ site), Th’ewá:lí (DgRl-17), and Xelhálh (DjRi-14). The sites included in this study are located within Stó:lō Traditional Territory and are associated with the bands of the Stó:lō Tribal Council and Stó:lō Nation, Skwah First Nation, and Chehalis First Nation. Of the eight sites included in this project, seven are located on First Nations ‘Indian Reserves’ including the Chawathil First Nation, Shxw’ow’hamel First Nation, Scowlitz First Nation, Soowahlie First Nation (each of which is associated with the Stó:lō Tribal Council), Skwah First Nation, and Chehalis First Nation. One site, DiRi-48 (Eyxel), is located on provincial Crown Land near the town of Hope. This project was carried out under the terms and conditions of the following permits: Stó:lō Heritage Investigation Permit #2004-28 (applicable to all sites), Chehalis Heritage Investigation Permit #2005-01 (applicable to ‘John Mack Slough’), and provincial H.C.A. Heritage Investigation Permit #2004-175 (applicable to DiRi-48). Funding for this project was provided through SSHRC (Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada) standard research grants 410-2003-1525 and 752-2003-2318.
