Native People Resource Collection
Lang. of recordings:
Biographical information on interviewees; time log sheets listing subjects and times; inventory to be prepared
Interviews recorded in 1982 and 1983 with Native elders, most of whom lived in or very near Metropolitan Toronto. The Spadina Road Branch undertook the Native Canadian Oral History Project in cooperation with the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto, to supplement other materials in the library's Native People Resource Collection. Life stories, customs and folklore, tribal history and myths of Ojibwa, Six Nations (Iroquois), Algonquin, Cree and Métis were discussed, with references to Toronto as well as to various other communities, especially sites of Native reservations. Photographs of 27 interviewees and their families also have been collected.
