Margaret has worked in the Canadian Arctic (Nunavut and the Northwest Territories) for the past 30 years. As a senior archaeologist with Parks Canada in Winnipeg, Manitoba, she conducted projects in cultural resource management and directed, or participated in, research projects in Canada’s Northern National Parks as well as many other remote locations. These projects gave Margaret the opportunity to live, work and travel extensively throughout the North, conducting archaeological survey and excavation projects from the Belcher Islands in Hudson Bay to northern Ellesmere Island, and from Baffin Island to the Mackenzie Delta.
Margaret’s experience involving historical Arctic archaeology includes recovering skeletal and artifact remains of the Franklin Expedition of 1845-48 on King William Island. She has also conducted extensive research and 3D laser scanning at Fort Conger, a significant and historic polar research base on northern Ellesmere Island.
Margaret has traveled extensively throughout the world and learned that wherever you go, Earth is breathtaking and the people are wonderful. Working with people in the small northern communities has been a highlight for her.
She has a master of arts degree in anthropology from McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario and a master of liberal arts degree from Naropa University, Oakland Campus, California. Her book Gaia’s Sacred Chakras explores the relation between human and earth chakras.
Since 2015, Margaret has lectured on cruise ships transiting the Northwest Passage between Greenland through the Canadian Arctic Archipelago and Alaska.
