We are now offering a women’s history tour through downtown St. John’s. The history of women’s contributions to the social, economic, political, cultural and domestic life of Newfoundland and Labrador is the subject of this walk. With this tour, we intend to increase public knowledge and awareness of women’s contributions to our province in a format that is accessible and fun. This walk lasts for 2 hours in total, and includes visits to 30 historic homes or establishments. Please see our Facebook page for the walk’s dates and times.

AARA Inc. President, Dr. Latonia Hartery, has published a new article in the Winter 2015/2016 edition of the Newfoundland Quarterly about the importance of involving local elders in community research. It is called “Elders, Exploration and Archaeology : Not So Tall Tales from Bird Cove – Pond Cove on the Great Northern Peninsula“. The research conducted in this area is a result of our long standing partnership with the communities of that region.
