Introduction Presenting New Opportunities Economic, Political, and Social Effects Different Strokes for Different Folks ... Saskatchewan River History
Contrary to common present expectations, land-locked Saskatchewan with its North and South Saskatchewan Rivers was once the super-highway of canoe transportation during the time of the fur trade. That's right! The fur trade! It was furs which brought exploration and commerce to Saskatchewan; furs and not farming. During the time of the fur trade (~1650's to 1850) water transportation was the primary form of travel and communication, and it was the canoe which provided the interface for blending the "old" and the "new" world; the established colonial settlement with the unknown wilderness. How did this happen and what role did Saskatchewan waterways have in western Canadian development? Any history is filled with strokes of genius, remarkable achievements, feats of courage, persistence and heroism; but as expected history is also full of surprise, risk, buffoonery and blunder. Canoeing history of Saskatchewan has not been short-changed in any of these respects. Obviously, the lay of the land - or in more scientific terms, the geographical features of this central region of the continent - played a crucial role in how exploration and transportation of goods took place. Although numerous native groups had hunted, trapped and travelled the continental waterways for thousands of years, it was the coming of foreigners initially by means of canoes which began a process which eventually altered life for everyone in the region.

THE STORY IN CAST METAL The saskatchewan history Folklore Society will provideboth administrative and financial assistance to communitybased projects aimed
Local History Marker Program
SHFS is concerned that the common history of a community or area often goes unrecognized and unnoticed. Through the Local History Marker Program, SHFS is looking to partner with groups and organizations for the preservation of an area's historical significance with the erection of lasting metal markers. WHO MAY APPLY Any group, organization or individual with an historical story to tell may apply for a grant. This story can be about natural or human history. The text on the plaque should be written from a social perspective, explaining how people in the community or the province at large were affected by the story's subject. Schools, churches and cemeteries are very well represented by SHFS Markers. Consequently, applications for these types of projects will be considered only if the project is unique to Saskatchewan. For projects of great significance to the province, the Society is willing to completely sponsor the cost of a plaque. THE STORY IN CAST METAL CRITERIA:
  • for stories about an individual, the individual must be deceased and his or her story must be at least 25 years old

Everyone in Southern Saskatchewan was on the relief program. Strong, relentlesswinds made farming impossible. Wheat Production in Saskatchewan
The Depression took place during the 1930s. This decade is also known as the "Dirty Thirties." The "Dirty Thirties" were incredibly hard on all the settlers. Production ceased and many jobs were lost. Many had to struggle just to survive. Severe dust storms and hot weather made farming impossible. Money was scarce so settlers had to spend their money as carefully as they could. The Depression started in October 1929 when the stock-market crashed. It reached its lowest points in 1933. Once the stockmarket crashed all aspects of life went down hill for some people. Industrial output came to a near standstill. It seemed, to some, that wherever settlers went to look for a job they were turned down. There were only a few businesses that were fortunate enough to be able to continue running. Others were not so lucky; they often went bankrupt causing them to have to move to another village or out of province in order to survive. Wholesale prices fell drastically. The Depression was a disaster for those who farmed. Many farmers went bankrupt and had to leave to look for work somewhere else. These transients found that the Depression had affected all parts of the country. Those who stayed to try and wait the "dirty thirties" out received relief from Government program's. With these programs people could get groceries on credit and also transfer goods from elsewhere on credit.

(Volume 54, Number 2) "Breaking the Mold: A Historiographical Review of Saskatchewan Women's History, 1880-1930."

Erin Millions Saskatchewan women's history has developed some rather peculiar characteristics as compared to Canadian women's history in general. The majority of Saskatchewan women's historiography deals with "celebratory" topics like pioneer women's experiences, "noteworthy" women, and women's organizations. While some authors have examined women's failures and oppression, the insights this material provides [have] not been significant enough [to] alter the dominant discourse of field that focuses on celebrating pioneer women's accomplishments. Most authors, however, have adopted recent trends in Canadian women's history such as ethnic and class analysis, new theoretical approaches, and a focus on diversity, and use these methods to investigate and celebrate Saskatchewan women's contributions to their province.

12. Saskatchewan History
History Of Water Polo In Saskatchewan. For the first time in history, a Saskatchewanteam was represented in the Canadian Water Polo National Championships.
History Of Water Polo In Saskatchewan The Sport of Water Polo was first introduced into Saskatchewan in 1913 by an Englishman named Don Mackay. He played water polo with the Lancashire International team. He brought the sport to Moose Jaw where he introduced it to the Moose Jaw Aquatic Club. He is also responsible for generating the interest, enthusiasm and developing the aquatic skills within the first water polo clubs in Moose Jaw.
Regina, having few indoor aquatic facilities prior to 1967 did not have a strong aquatics program. After the University pool was constructed, Steve Jerkovits is credited with creating the interest in the sport of water polo in Regina. He approached a number of speed swimmers and life guards at the University pool about playing the game. As a result of his effort, the first University Cougar Team was formed in 1968. He was quoted as saying "In the beginning there was very little skill, but lots of determination."
The first team members of the University team included Jim Ursan, Lynne Anderson, Mike Donegan, Cliff Chase, David Dexter, Craig and Keith Bertram, Bob Kennedy, Ian Watch, Carl Ellard, Mike Boyd and Dave Pettigrew. The Regina team represented the south in the 1968 Saskatchewan Summer Games and Provincial Championships in Saskatoon. The team continued to grow and take shape and after a 20 game schedule was played, Regina was able to send an All-Star Team to the National Championships. For the first time in history, a Saskatchewan team was represented in the Canadian Water Polo National Championships. The Regina team showed better than expected, by defeating teams from Victoria, Edmonton, Vancouver and Winnipeg.

17. Saskatchewan History
With each passing day, grain elevators, once the symbol of prairieprosperity, vanish from the Saskatchewan landscape. And so too
W ith each passing day, grain elevators, once the symbol of prairie prosperity, vanish from the Saskatchewan landscape. And so too have dozens of pioneer towns, villages and settlements. They are now the ghost towns of Saskatchewan. Before rail lines stretched across the prairies in the late 1800s, the wind-swept grasslands were home only to trappers, fur traders and natives. It was a time of high pioneer drama and adventure. But for authorities in Ottawa, it became too wild and the first wave of the Northwest Mounted Police — known as the Red Coats — were dispatched to restore law and order. A force of 300 Red Coats formed the Thin Red Line to stop the whiskey trade and to make peace with the fleeing American Sioux Indians who defeated General George Custer at Little Bighorn. By the turn of the 20th century, massive railway and federal government promotional campaigns attracted thousands of Europeans and Americans to the prairies. The green grasslands became instant golden wheat fields. Every 10 kilometres along rail lines, towns sprang up overnight. For a few decades, rail transportation was cheap; the rain plentiful and the harvest bounty truly golden. However, by the 1920s, the once reliable rains suddenly stopped. Soon there was widespread drought, dust storms, flies, and marauding grasshoppers and rabbits. Farmers and homesteaders fled. It was the beginning of the end.

Big River History: Part I - Pre-settlement
This page excerpted from "Timber Trails"-1979
Compiled by Big River History Book Committee
This section will tell you how the first peoples came to the Big River area
It is uncertain when the original 'Indian' tribes began to settle in bands in the Big River area. With the infiltration of the white populations in the east, the tribes began to retreat further west and north, away from the white settlements and into the area that would eventually become known as Saskatchewan. The earliest Cree tribes in the Big River area are said to be the descendants of the Dogrib and Wood Indians from Athabasca. These people enjoyed an abundant supply of water and prosperous hunting grounds. One band of Cree established a camp on the banks of a long, narrow river. They called it 'Oklemow-Cee-Pee' which, when translated, means 'Big River'. It is from this translation that the town of Big River got it's name. From legends handed down through generations of Cree Indians, we learn that a band of Stoney Indians established a camp site on the west side of a lake currently named Delaronde. After the battle of Little Big Horn, some of the surviving followers of Chief Sitting Bull made their way to a Delaronde beach. The local Crees named this lake 'The Lake of the Stoneys' and so for years it was known as 'Stoney Lake' to the settlers. Sometime later it was officially renamed in honor of Alex Delaronde, one of the early settlers who ran a stopping place at the south end of the lake.

Review: Discovering Saskatchewan History
J. Mark Mealing TAFT, Michael • Discovering Saskatchewan Folklore: Three Case Studies. Edmonton, NeWest Press, n.d. (1983). pp. 150. Available from: NeWest Publishers, Ltd., Suite 204, 8631 109th Street, Edmonton, AB T6G 1E8. Price not given. The format of this recent work by Michael Taft is that of an extended scholarly paper, but its style clearly aims beyond academe to embrace the serious reader and intrigue the scanner. Taft opens with two brief chapters; the first develops his broad and lively working definition of folklore ("...customs, traditions, and heritage. . . right under our own noses. . . the kind of creativity shared by members of a group.") alongside a basic outline of folklore genres, their forms and functions. The second chapter tackles the problem of identifying Saskatchewan folklore by developing, through detailed examples from regional song tradition, the concept and process of the oikotype, aptly illustrating the breadth of universal sources and the depth of local and personal adaptation. Taft's conclusion reaffirms both the uniqueness and universality (old lively paradox!) of the traditions that concern himself and his informants, thereby rendering homage to the creativity of individuals and the human unity from which they draw their special strengths. Thus he illuminates the essential powers and purposes of folklore: an aspect of humanity that encounters external reality, creating what did not heretofore exist, transforming continually what always existed. No small part of Taft's success in his avoidance of scholarly jargon, and the ensuing focus upon lively content, perpetually obliging the reader to approach tradition directly and personally, as do the folk.
