Our site name was given to us by a Cree researcher at the University of Saskatchewan Archives, who in turn was influenced by the late Chief Mary Ann Stoney, Little Pine First Nation. Chief Stoney was known for her commitment to Cree language curriculum development. Although we recognize the numerous Indigenous languages spoken in Saskatchewan and across Canada, we have included Cree to honour this gift and Dene to honour our northern partners, Pahkisimon Nuye?áh Library System (Northern Saskatchewan Archives).
[A note about language used on this site]
Existing titles have been transcribed verbatim. Some terms may therefore be considered offensive. They have been retained to accurately provide evidence of the time they were created.
This site is a co-operative initiative among several of Saskatchewan’s publicly-accessible archives. It is primarily intended to increase the information normally available for archival material by providing access to descriptions of material at a file or item level. Where appropriate, some guides (finding aids) are also available. Although less comprehensive, the site also includes some published (library) and artifactual (museum) material. Please note that materials have been digitized based on consideration of known copyright, privacy, and particularly, cultural concerns.
This site is in progress. We hope future additions will eventually provide researchers with the capability to access information concerning all relevant archival resources available in Saskatchewan’s publicly-accessible collections.
