The history of Indigenous art in Canada begins sometime during the last Ice Age between 80, and 12, years ago see Prehistory. To date, however, the oldest surviving artworks excluding finely crafted, aesthetically significant stone tools are datable to no earlier than 5, years ago. Decorative and depictive carvings from the earliest periods have been found in the Lower Fraser region of British Columbia , and other pieces have been found in several parts of Canada. The development of Indigenous art in Canada is in many ways more complex than that of the relatively recent European settlers, and may be divided into three distinct periods: prehistoric art, contact or "historic" art, and contemporary Aboriginal art. While historians of Aboriginal art rely to a large extent upon archaeological finds in the study of the prehistoric period, the work of ethnographers, ethno-historians, and historical archaeologists who study the history and evolution of Indigenous cultures through the analysis of documents, maps, and a variety of material artifacts, is of vital importance for knowledge of historic Aboriginal art.
