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!

Join Kevin Power and members of the Saskatchewan Archaeological Society at their 53rd annual gathering.  We all have archeology – it’s what connects us.  You’ll be amazed at just how far back Saskatchewan’s history has been traced through the discovery of artifacts. But you’ll also hear some great conversations about engaging youth through the work being done by the Society, and the importance of telling the STORY behind the objects found.

SaskScapes – with guest Gary Edwards

Gary Edwards is a Cultural Support Provider for Residential School Survivors at All Nations Hope in Regina. A survivor himself, Gary was rounded up by a gunboat and issued to a residential school in Ile Ste. Croix at the age of 2. Gary talks about his experience, painting pictures with his words- his phrasing almost poetic. He speaks of his journey to healing, the Indigenous way of life, and the many guides who have supported him on his path. It is my hope, as it is Gary’s, that someone hears this episode who needs to hear it in order to help in their own healing, As Gary says: “Let’s hope that one day this conversations never happens”.
