Peeling Back the Grid: Restoring “First Families” of the Edmonton District to their proper places on the map
with Documentary Filmmaker Dylan Reade
Co-sponsored by: Société généalogique du Nord-Ouest (SGNO)
ABOUT THE PRESENTATION
Animated maps and little-known genealogical resources help point the way to rebuilding the larger and older story that lies beyond the false boundaries of our River Lot narratives. A rediscovery of community in the days before scrip, survey or Reserves.Case studies from across the Edmonton District include examples from recent work produced for the UNESCO Beaver Hills Biosphere.
We will hold session 2 of this theme on June 23, with local artist Amber Paquette speaking on “Uncovered Chapters: Stories of Métis Genealogy & Kinship.“ I hope you can join us, or pass on to others who are captivated by our amazing & meaningful social history in Alberta.
