June 17, 2014 On June 5th, author and archaeological legend Hilary Stewart passed away at the age of 90.

Hilary was born in 1924 and lived in St Lucia, West Indies until she moved to England with her family at age nine. Early on, she was taken with her first experience of Canadian First Nations culture following a lecture by "Grey Owl".

After graduating from her studies at St. Martin's School of Art in London, she joined her brother Peter in Canada.  She emersed herself into the life of the Canadian wilderness.

During her years as a writer when she volunteered articles and illustrations for the archaeological Society of British Columbia, she became an early advocate of experimental archaeology.  She subsequently wrote and illustrated books on First Nations' artifacts, which became best sellers.

In 2005, she won the CAA's Pendergast Award for contributions by an avocational archaeologist.

Over the years, she published many books and her most well-known include "Cedar" (1984), "Looking at Indian Art" (1992), and "Looking at Totem Poles " (1993).

She spent many years on book tours, lectured and did demonstrations for various educational organizations, museums, art galleries, and became a regular hands-on instructor at Strathcona Park Lodge. She even curated three exhibitions for the UBC Museum of Anthropology on the subject of her books.

She felt "everything outdoors was fascinating", and her voice and beautiful illustrations in her work are a living testament to her complete devotion and dedication to life on the West coast.
