  • Interviews conducted in 1989 and 1990. A broad range of
    communities are represented, based on their numerical importance
    within the population; the collection also represents a balance
    in terms of geography, since different groups tend to live in
    different areas of the province. The communities are African,
    Carribean, Chinese, Croatian, Serbian, Asian, Austrian, Belgian,
    Czech, Slovak, Danish, Dutch, Doukhobor, English, Finnish,
    Francophone, German, Greek, Hungarian, Hutterite, Icelandic, East
    Indian, Irish, Italian, Japanese, Jewish, Latin American,
    Mennonite, Norwegian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Scandivanian,
    Scottish, Swedish, Swiss, Ukrainian and Welsh, as well as Cree
    and Métis. Material generally covers cultural traditions still
    in practice by ethnocultural groups in Saskatchewan. Topics
    include beliefs, festivities, folklore, domestic life, family,
    food, community life, migration, pioneer life and life histories.
    Transcripts are not available for some recordings because of
    sound quality or unavailability of translator; in some cases
    cultural tradition prevented the production of written
    Recordings to be deposited with the Saskatchewan Archives Board.
