As shadows fall.


Prior to 1870 the Aboriginal Peoples were the main inhabitants of the future province of Saskatchewan. While the fur traders had been in the province since the late 1600s, their relationship with the Aboriginal Peoples was one of mutual dependency. Consequently, while changes had occurred, their lifestyle basically remained the same. With the transfer of the Northwest from the Hudson’s Bay Company to the government of Canada, change came rapidly and with devastating results. Mutual dependency could no longer function in an agricultural society where the land was plowed and fences were built. Treaties and reserves signalled an end to the traditional Aboriginal way of life and the beginning of the settlement experience in Saskatchewan.
