Cree can 'taste' rich settlement


Author(s): Fisher, M.

Year: 1985

Abstract:
Many other bands in this prime fur-trading region reached agreement with the Government in the late nineteenth century when Treaties 6 and 7 were signed. But this Cree band did not surrender its claim to the land "because the elders had heard Indians were being herded on to reserves and they didn't want this," Mr. [Archie Waquan] said. "I'm glad they waited." The wait has not always been pleasant.

Abstract:
This gallery of photographs taken by Terry Garvin over a period of 50 years is a dynamic part of the People of the Boreal Forest Website, which is part of the Alberta Online Encyclopedia. The site was developed as an Aboriginal Centennial project by the Heritage Community Foundation in partnership with Terry Garvin and the Aseniwuche Winewak First Nation. Funding support was provided by Alberta Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development (now Alberta Aboriginal Relations).
