SaskScapes – The Provincial Heritage Fair

This episode is sponsored by Heritage Saskatchewan.  

Heritage Saskatchewan is the collective voice of all those who value heritage in Saskatchewan. As knowledge-brokers and pathfinders, Heritage Saskatchewan raises awareness of Living Heritage.

Join Kevin Power at the Provincial Heritage Fair held in Regina in May 2016. The Heritage Fair program is a student-centered, inquiry learning opportunity to explore Saskatchewan and Canada. For the past 20 years teachers and students from across Saskatchewan (from grades 4 to 8) have been participating in these amazing events. Students are chosen to represent their class or school at one of the four Regional Heritage Fairs and from that event several students are chosen to present their projects at the Provincial Heritage Fair. With brilliant, articulate and passionate young minds like those we hear from in this episode, the future preservation of our heritage is in very good hands!

SaskScapes – Culture Days in Preeceville

It’s another Culture Days episode! Join Kevin Power as he heads to Preeceville, SK after spending time in Yorkton (episode 65). The Preeceville Heritage Museum committee pulls out all the stops with an “Ethnic Desert Night”. Prepare to have your salivary glands activated as several of Kevin’s guests talk about their cultural background and how the dishes they’ve prepared tie in with their heritage. You’ll also hear from Lorne, one of Preeceville’s former history teachers who talks about how this town came to be, how it has changed over the years, and the history of the Doukhobour’s in this part of the province. And as far as all of those calories on display at this event, I’m told that it is only fattening if you swallow!

SaskScapes – Culture Days in Yorkton

It’s a Culture Days 2015 retrospective as Kevin Power travels to Yorkton to explore how that community celebrates during the nation wide movement honouring our culture. This is Kevin’s first stop during the weekend, but as you’ll see, there is a common theme in all three of the Culture Day’s podcast episodes coming up. That theme is FOOD! This episode features coffee talk and the sounds and smells in the kitchen where East Indian food is prepared by locals, and shared with dozens of Yorkton residents. You’ll also learn a bit about soapbox derby races.  Thanks to SaskCulture for the support given to help these events happen.
