In 2015, Smithers Town Council identified a Shared Histories project as a Town priority.  Through a series of Community-to-Community forums between the Town and the Office of the Wet’suwet’en – made possible with funding from the Union of BC Municipalities – the project has taken shape.

Recently, Tyler McCreary, a post-doctoral researcher with the University of British Columbia, secured funding to coordinate the project. An advisory committee with representatives from the two parties will help guide the research.
