Had a great weekend at the Battle of Cryslers Farm. Being a event organizer means not having a lot of time to take photos. But here are a few and a couple from others. Saturday I played a US regular and Sunday I was a redcoat. You do what you gotta do! .

Enjoyed touring the original S.S. Moyie: the oldest intact passenger steam vessel of its kind in the world.  Launched in 1898 in Nelson and retired in 1957 as “the sweetheart of the lake” in charming Kaslo BC 🇨🇦 #ssmoyie #kaslobc #travelbc #canadashistory #canadahistory #kaslo #beautifulbritishcolumbia #familytrip #ships #oldship #historicsite #historicships #familyholiday #bctravel #explorekootenaylake #findingawesome #kootenaylife #kootenayliving #kootenaylake

When @fordnationdougford and @ontario_pc decide to cancel an important component of the TRC (Truth and Reconciliation Commission), you speak up. Email your local MPP and the new education minister Lisa Thompson and give her a piece of your mind....I know I did #trc #truthandreconciliation #moreworktogetdone #indiginousrights #wewillnotforget #canadashistory
Oh Canada... At the Native Blanket Ceremony was this beautifully haunting picture, and in the background you cant see it because of the way it was hung but that is a oil drill behind the bodies...if we cant believe the people who are Canada then we arent any better then we think we are just because we are Canadian. Earn that name.

Manitoba’s First Flag 
A few years ago I read Maggie Siggins’ biography “Riel” and at one point she mentioned that the flag of the Red River Resistance was composed of a fleur-de-lis and a shamrock. I’m currently reading J. M. Bumsted’s “The Red River Rebellion” and he describes this flag as well, although he also refers to a flag consisting of three crosses on a field of white fringed with a gold braid that may pre-date it. The fleur-de-lis and shamrock combination appears to be the one adopted by Louis Riel and his provisional government. The fleur-de-lis is likely a reference to the French heritage of the Metis participants while the shamrock is apparently as a nod to co-conspirator William O’Donoghue’s Irish background. I’m not certain who designed the flag but likely Riel himself would have had some say. The question I have is: what happened to this flag? It’s clearly an important historical artifact but no trace of it seems to remain. It’s possible that when Canadian troops retook the fort from Riel that they may have destroyed the flag, although sometimes items such as these were kept as trophies. At about this point the flag simply disappears from the record. There don’t appear to have been any photographs that exist which include it, so we really can’t say for certain what it looked like. There are however, two artists’ renderings of the execution of Canadian loyalist Thomas Scott, which include depictions of a flag which may be that of the provisional government. It would be interesting to learn its ultimate fate, and, in the very remote chance that it still exists, to have it held in our provincial historical archives.

Canada day is tomorrow. Gord wanted so much for our beautiful country, and to make up for Canada’s mistakes and history. Let’s not let him down. Rest In Peace, and Happy Canada Day.🇨🇦 #gorddownie #chaniewenjack #residentialschool #canadashistory #history #canada #canadaday
Another short jaunt through #canadashistory took me to the #ewanmoberlyhomestead in #jaspernationalpark. This house is a replica, built by Ewan's Grandson Michael in the mid to late 90's.  A quick look around makes it easy to see why they chose to homestead here.
Visit to #FortRoddHill today, because, why not? Actually interesting and sobering to see how it was here at war time. The lighthouse itself is beautiful. #History #NationalHistoricalSite #CanadasHistory #WWI #WWII #Lighthouse #Artillery #FisgardLighthouse #yyj #yyjAttractions #Bunker

As part of a policy of assimilation, the federal government banned the potlatch from 1884 to 1951 in an amendment to the Indian Act. The government and its supporters saw the ceremony as anti-Christian, reckless and wasteful of personal property. They failed to understand the potlatch’s symbolic importance as well as its communal economic exchange value.

By the time the ban was repealed in 1951, due largely to the difficulties of enforcement and changes in attitudes, traditional Indigenous identities had been damaged and social relations disrupted. However, the ban did not completely eradicate the potlatch, which still exists in various communities today

Métis are people of mixed European and Indigenous ancestry, and one of the three recognized #aboriginal #peoples in Canada. The use of the term Métis is complex and contentious, and has different historical and contemporary meanings. The term is used to describe #communities of mixed European and Indigenous descent across Canada, and a specific community of people — defined as the Métis Nation — which originated largely in Western Canada and emerged as a political force in the 19th century, radiating outwards from the Red River Settlement. While the Canadian government politically marginalized the Métis after 1885, they have since been recognized as an Aboriginal people with rights enshrined in the Constitution of Canada and more clearly defined in a series of Supreme Court of Canadadecisions. For more information read " Métis" by Adam Gaudry.

This month's topic weighs heavy on our hearts. It's one of pain and suffering. A part in our history that so few like to talk about, and others who would rather pretend does not exist.

This month we got together as a group and watched the film "We Were Children". A documentary that gives a first hand account of 2 survivors stories throughout their childhood in Residential Schools.

This powerful film educates us on the tragedy that gripped Aboriginal people in the country and around the world. And the forever effects such trauma brought into the lives of so many.

Let's learn from the past. Let it guide us into a more inclusive, loving and compassionate future that embraces cultures and people, and spreads love instead of hate ❤

This is a journey I should have taken sooner, I’ve been living in Canada for a long time now, and I need to actively explore Canada’s collective history. And since I’ve started this journey I’ve learnt how similar the Irish Natives and First Peoples lives were, their customs, traditions, connections with the earth, and sadly in their histories. #reconciliation #canadashistory #irishnative #firstpeoples

For the 2017 Government of Canada History Awards, one of the 5 topics was reconciliation with indigenous peoples. My sister submitted a work historical fiction about a Semiahmoo woman...She won a $1,000 award Masha Allah!!!!!! This is what she said about her writing: "I learned about First Nations peoples and reconciliation in Grade 10 and I just could not comprehend the injustices that Aboriginal Peoples went through in the past and that they continue to go through. In doing this historical piece of writing, I hoped to learn more about the state of Aboriginal Peoples today and what we can do to help raise awareness to their plight, and give them an equal place in society." #writerinthefamily

It is as astonishing to think how much has changed in the last 100 years. Take agriculture for instance. .
We found these books from the Ontario Department of Agriculture printed in 1901 & 1930 in the barn. The books provide information on cheese and butter making and instruction on butchering hogs and curing pork. Back then horses worked the land and now there are tractors equipped with GPS that can drive themselves. .
However, the most surprising thing I found was an article on insects put out by the Ontario Department of Agriculture in 1901. It boldly claims that God is the creator of all! Swipe to read the pages of the articles.👉
.
This was the change that surprised me the most... To think in a 100 years it's gone from being taught and accepted in major institutions and government that God is the Divine Creator of all, to atheism and teaching the "theory" of evolution and "the big bang" as fact.
.
To quote from the article:
.
"Who fitted the water-bug to the part it has to play? It did not fit itself... Did nature? No--we do not deify Nature. There is a Divine Being who originated and controls natural forces-- who designed this creature, so admirable in every part."

What an amazing activity to start out the week! The students had a chance to visit a landmark that is very significant to Toronto. Ireland Park is a memorial to those who immigrated to Canada to begin a new life. Men, women, and children left Ireland in the wake of The Great Famine, a period in the late 1800's where the country was in turmoil due to mass starvation. Ireland Park serves as a commemoration to those who traveled great distances in order to re-build a new home here, and it is woven into the fabric of Toronto's history. #canada #canadashistory #culture #multicultural #immigration #ireland #yyz #toronto #education #experience #exploretoronto #esl #studyabroad #learn #happystudents #internationalfriends

Exhibit on Francophone Immigration in Canada: A part of our history.  Now on display until March 25th.  #thunderbay #tbay #mytbay #francophoneaucanada #francophone #francophones #canada #exhibition #marchbreak #canadashistory
There are 4 totem poles in @romtoronto stairway. Totem poles were used by the people of the northwest to commemorate a piece of history, tell a legend, honour a person, welcome visitors. Their uses varied and their stories were often intertwined with the community requiring an oral telling to help understand its meaning. Learning as much as we can about our First Peoples helps ensure their stories and experiences endure. Their history is our history and we’re grateful the #ROM holds a space to help make this possible. Visit torontocommon.com for tickets & info to our private tour of the First Peoples Gallery.

As a black Canadian Business Woman I LOVE that Viola Desmond is being honoured on the $10 bill. It stirred up some real reflection on not only my history, my country’s history it made me look at my history of 32 years on this earth. As a Western Canadian Caribbean it’s interesting to look back an assess my challenges as a black female from 1980’s 1990’s to now the 21st Century. I truly believe my parents choice of immigrating to this country and specifically Calgary built a unique identity for me as a black little girl. Racism was and is definitely a live and well BUT for ME it is not poured over me like a river on a daily basis. I can only speak for me and my experience and yes Canadians to me are warmer kinder and less judgmental when they meet me. I have experienced the complete opposite reaction in the States and not from just one race but from my same complexion. On a daily basis I get asked if I’m African American?! I laugh because honestly some people just don’t know what they don’t know especially if it has not been established. I proudly respond “Jamaican Canadian, and since you know we are in Canada maybe reflect on you last sentence.” Honestly I don’t truly care about defining the facts as I know we are all one but as we border a country in some serious turmoil it’s relevant. Yes my ancestors are technically African descendants but also both sides of my parents are also from European decent and a bunch of other countries welcome to the West Indies. Anyway, it seems to me both United States and Canada get mixed up for its history when both identities are much different. When it comes to “black people” it’s is interesting where we turn to for pop culture. America!? My hope is for more Viola Desmond’s in the 21st century to define success and inspiration from more Black Canadian women. I love me some Julie Black, and did some research and found Portia White, Carrie Best as more Canadian women historians. But besides Drake, who mostly comes up in Google when searching “black Canadians” who else can young ladies aspire to?

This Mythbuster Monday falls on Louis Riel Day, a day meant to celebrate the achievements of a man who assisted the Métis people in their fight against colonialism in the 19th century.

Today we would like to challenge the myth that his fight against colonialism is in the past.

Fact: Colonialism is an ongoing evil that hasn't stopped affecting Indigenous people on Turtle Island (North America). First of all, what is colonialism? Colonialism is the practice of dominating a country, occupying it with settlers and exploiting the people, economy and every part of that nation. The Canadian government continues to uphold colonialist beliefs which oppresses Indigenous folks and it is incredibly important that we keep that in mind when having conversations about racism in Canada. #knowyourhistory #whitesupremacy #indigenoussolidarity #antiracism #anticolonialism #canada #canadashistory #socialjustice

Smuggler cove. Beautiful place but a dark history. 
Smuggler Cove owes its name to its reported use by Larry Kelly. Kelly, the “King of the Smugglers” who was also known as “Pirate” came up to Canada after fighting for the confederates in the American Civil War. When the Canadian Pacific Railway was completed, many unemployed Chinese workers tried to emigrate to the United States but were forbidden official entry. Kelly assisted the Chinese to cross the border for a fee of $100 each. His insurance against detection was to have the Chinese agree to be roped together and tied to a large hunk of pig iron. If there was a chance that would be apprehended by U.S. customs, he would throw the iron and Chinese overboard.

#SaturdaySchool #Cantonese Class at #MonKeangSchool lesson 4 yesterday was on Friends & Family. We took a field trip to 2 #ChinatownYVR #ChineseClanAssociations the Ing and Kong Chow. Faced with discrimination, poverty and racism at the turn of the century, the Chinese collectively organized and built Clan Associations to provide services for each other and maintain social connectedness in a foreign land. Organized by region and last name, the Association provided housing, banking, employment, death ceremonies, political advocacy, safe recreational space and more. #ChinatownYVR houses 100+ associations all approaching 100 years old. The Ing Association is the only one that formed and remains in its current location today. All others formed in Victoria before moving to #vancouverchinatown

There’s a lot of history here in Belleville. 
Did you know that it was renamed Belleville in honour of Lady Arabella Gore in 1816, after a visit to the settlement by Sir Francis Gore and his wife. It had gone through several names before settling on Belleville.

In 1836 Belleville became an incorporated village. By 1846, it had a population of 2040. There were several stone buildings, including a jail and court house as well as some of the seven churches. Transportation to other communities was by stagecoach and, in summer, by a steamboat. Two weekly newspapers were being published. The post office received mail daily. Several court and government offices were located here. In addition to tradesmen, there was some small industry, three cloth factories, a paper miall, two grist mills, three tanneries and two breweries. Seventeen taverns were in operation.

Belleville became an important railway junction with the completion of the Grand Trunk Railway in 1856; this plus a booming trade in lumber and successful farming in the area helped increase the commercial and industrial growth. Belleville was incorporated as a town in 1850.

Beaconsfield designed by PEI architect W.C. Harris was built in 1877 for ship merchant James Peake Jr. A very modern home for its time -- with gas lighting, central heating, water closet, 25 rooms, 8 fireplaces & running water -- it was a most impressive and luxurious home. Beaconsfield is now a historic house museum and houses offices of the PEI Museum & Heritage Foundation.  The Carriage House is available for events and museum programming. A Christmas Craft Fair will be held here on Saturday, November 25 from 10 am to 3 pm. Free admission!  2 Kent Street. Carriage House entrance off West Street.

Hello Edmonton.. it’s been awhile. ❄️ 🚙
While checking out a show at the Newmarket Town Hall today, I also happened to check out the World War 1 exhibit by @newmarkeths that was down stairs in the lobby.
This includes going through a replica of the trenches at Vimy Ridge with some great detail about how life would have been for Canadian soldiers and what it would have looked like in 1914 - 1918. •
•

The play that I got a chance to see tied into World War 1 and was written for Canada’s 150 birthday celebration. Kudos to those with Stouffville Theatre Company on a job well done. •

Great job @barb8828 on all your characters, and thank you @psidon27 for bringing me along!!

Here are some photos from the 1917 - Canada Comes of Age exhibition now installed at the Caijuan Gallery in Cornwall until November 25th. This is a three city painting exhibition that looks back at the year 1917... 50 years after Confederation and 100 years ago, when Canada came of age. I am thrilled to be a small part of this fabulous show!. The final stop for this show will take place at the Aurora Cultural Centre Gallery from November 30th to December 30th. The opening reception takes place on December 7th from 6 - 8 p.m.

A Second World War-era photo illustrates Canada’s determination to defeat Nazis. 
Submitted by Anita Hochstein of Glastonbury, Connecticut. 
This photo shows my mom, Helen Schrempp Hochstein, and her brother Wilfred Schrempp, both of Twin Butte, Alta., in Ottawa in 1943. Born in 1913 and 1916, respectively, Wilf and Helen were the third and fourth children of Bertha Lattman and Fred Schrempp. Bertha and Fred homesteaded at Twin Butte after coming from Hartington, Neb., around 1905 with a group of other ranchers, mostly of German descent.

Both Helen and Wilf graduated from the Normal School in Calgary and taught locally until the Second World War. Mom and her friend Mary McIntyre Schmidt took the train to Ottawa after passing an employment test for work with the Canadian government. Mom worked for the Canadian Army, and Uncle Wilf visited her there while serving in the Army. Wilf also served in the Pacific theatre and brought home a real grass skirt from Tahiti.

After the war, Wilf ranched and taught in the Twin Butte area until he died in 1982. Mom went back to Twin Butte in 1944 to marry Dr. Francis A. Hochstein, who was also the son of homesteaders from Nebraska. Dad studied at the University of Chicago and at MIT in Massachusetts before a long career with Pfizer.

Mom passed away in 2002, but she always spoke fondly of Ottawa and of how she passed up a chance to be photographed by Yousuf Karsh.

Portrait of Chesterfield Inlet elder taken by my Eon who was in charge of the weather radio station up there in the late1950s and used his spare time to capture a way of life that was fast disappearing. I have a huge collection of his work and am not sure what to do with it. Any suggestions?

Portrait of Chesterfield Inlet elder taken by my Eon who was in charge of the weather radio station up there in the late1950s and used his spare time to capture a way of life that was fast disappearing. I have a huge collection of his work and am not sure what to do with it. Any suggestions? . #inuitelder  #chesterfieldinletnunuvut  #portraits  #canadashistory  #nationaltreasures  #canadiannorth  #historicphotos  #photography  #portraitphotography  #ourhistory  #awayoflife  #photocollection  #blackandwhitephotography  #photocapture  #historicalphotos  #garbaduke_gabricci
