In 2005 the Canadian Plains Research Centre, University of Regina Press created the single, largest, educational publishing project in Saskatchewan's history, the Encyclopedia of Saskatchewan, to celebrate Saskatchewan’s centennial anniversary. The encyclopedia was publicly available online until mid-2018. Within this encyclopedia were a significant number of resources that documented Saskatchewan’s numerous Indigenous Peoples’ histories, significant figures and events. With permission from the University of Regina Press, the GMCTL and Indigenous Voices offer these resources on our website as they were originally published.
Our goal in providing these articles is to offer a starting point for the many people who are interested in learning more about the histories of the Indigenous Peoples of Saskatchewan. These great resources are not be perfect examples of historical and contemporary truths, due to the ever-changing nature of truth in Canada, but they do provide a broad overview to answer many questions and to stimulate many conversations. We encourage readers to use these resources with a constructive and critical perspective. If you find something of importance to report, please use the feedback link on each page to let us know.
