DENE THA' FIRST NATION: Historic Overview

The DENE THA' are one of the least-known First Nations in North America. They were the last Nation in Alberta to take reser- vations, the Chief then being the last Hereditary Chief in Canada. They remained one of the most isolated groups until recently. There is virtually nothing in print pertaining to the history of this Nation. This is the first - and only - publication tracing the history of this group from it's early origins to their settlement on reservations in the 1950's. This publication, dealing with Northwestern Alberta, is also the first comprehensive overview of the history of that region. 148 pages. Support independent publishing: Buy this book on Lulu.

THE WESTERN CREE: 1650-1770, THE CANOE CREE

For slightly over a century the Cree of the Saskatchewan River made yearly trips to York Factory to trade. This phenomenon has never been fully examined, and has usually been explained as a desire by the Cree to profit from being middlemen in the trade to more distant tribes. But was that the real reason, and was it enough motivation for a 4000 to 6000 mile trek? With this in mind, we take a closer look at the history, motivation, psychology and mechanics of the historic equivalent of a trip to the mall. Support independent publishing: Buy this book on Lulu.

THE WESTERN CREE: Louis Joseph Piche (Chief PESEW), The Founding of A Dynasty

If there is such a family as a Cree Royal Family it would have to be the family of Louis Joseph Piche. Piche was perhaps the most influential chief of the PAKISIMATAN WI INIWAK, the West People. Born in the east, a descendant explorer Jean of Nicolette, Louis Joseph Piche joined the fur trade in 1780 as an ordinary canoeman and was sent to the Athabasca River, where he served under Peter Pond. By 1822 he had risen to the highest rank available to the ordinary Voyageur, when the Metis and Indian vayageurs summarily laid off. Over the next 20 years these very Metis and Indians gathered around Piche, creating a new Cree Indian band, with Piche, now known as PESEW, becoming the most politically powerful band of the Western Cree and Nakoda. PESEW fathered a large family, in 1815 one of his daughters marrying a PIKANI chief, becoming the matriach of a long lineage of PIKANI chiefs. Over the next 50 years several of his sons also became chiefs and a number of his daughters married chiefs. By the time of the Treaties most of the West People bands were headed by his sons or son-in-laws, making them the most powerful block among the Cree and Nakoda. Today most western Cree chiefs can trace their lineage back to Louis Piche. 468 pages. Support independent publishing: Buy this book on Lulu.

THE WESTERN CREE: Jacques Cardinal, Voyageur and Mountainman

Born in the east, Jacques Cardinal entered the fur trade in the west, where he was a participant in numerous historic events. Initially a canoeman with David Thompson throughout western Canada, Cardinal came to settle in the mountains of Alberta. He became the first known man to boat the Red Deer River, cut the trail across Howse Pass so it could be 'discovered' by David Thompson and founded the Kootenay Plains Rendezvous, the first of the famed Mountainman Rendezvous. Transfered to Jasper (AB), he explored the region and opened the route from Jasper to the Kootenay Plains Rendezvous. Cardinal remained at Jasper for some 25 years as second in command and in charge of the fur brigades traveling through Jasper to British Columbia. Over the years he came to be regarded as the Chief of a growing band of mixed Cree, Nakoda and Iroquois and several sons went on to become chiefs as far away as eastern Saskatchewan. He raised a large family and had numerous descendants. It is estimated that there are some 180,000 descendants living in Alberta today. Support independent publishing: Buy this book on Lulu.

ALBERTA HISTORY: THE MOUNDBUILDER CULTURE IN ALBERTA - 1,100 A.D. Alberta's First Farmers

This is the first documented discovery of a Moundbuilder/Temple Mound Culture settlement in Canada, 1000 km. from the Moundbuilder homeland. In 2009 evidence was found suggesting that a Moundbuilder culture had existed in Alberta, contrarty to the accepted archaeological history of Alberta (our Provincial Archaeologist is on record saying that "There are no aboriginal burials in Alberta."). More recently several village/ ceremonial sites related to the Temple Mound Mississippian Culture, including major earthworks, have been found. This is a northern relation to the Cahokia Temple Mound city ruins. An introduction to six of the major sites to date and an attempt to identify who these early farming people were, where they came from, and where they went. Photos. 155 pg.

ALBERTA HISTORY: KINDER-MORGAN Trans-Mountain Pipeline ARCHAEOLOGICAL SURVEY ASSESSMENT, Winterburn - Wabamun, Alberta

In Canada Federal Government law requires that large earth-disturbance developments consult with the pertinent aboriginal groups who have historic connections with that location. To test to see how well this is being done, in the spring of 2013 we spent 2 weeks undercover with the Tera Environmental Consulting archaeological field crew to assess their work. What we looked for was Site location, identification and reporting Site interpretation Administration and management Consultation with aboriginal groups Crew preparation and competence Interaction with aboriginal members They failed on all counts. Consultation was neglegible and ineffective; staff were underqualified; management was poor; oversight was nonexistent; training was non- existent; proceedures were unprofessional; 80% of sites were not identified or recorded; site interpretation was poor; interaction with aboriginal crews was poor at best. This report covers our assessment of the consultative process, fieldwork, competence, management, crew asses- sment and staff interaction. We include the assessment, data supplied by an aboriginal, daily field-notes and interpretation of a major significant site ignored by the archaeologists.

Little thought is of the organization of these brigades, or their part in an overall scheme. Least of all do we think that these brigades - from the heartland of the wilderness, were tightly orchestrated and scheduled. Looking at the records, it is clear that these in fact had a schedule, with a specific timetable. Year after year the brigade could be counted on to show up at a specific place (and more importatly, at their terminal) within a day or two of a scheduled date. This publication lays out the schedule of the various brigades. From these schedules we can now know not only where each brigade was at any given time, but also where the individuals on these brigades were, and events and people they met along the way.

ALBERTA HISTORY: JASPER NATIONAL PARK - 10,000 Years of Indian History; Part 1 - to 1750

Here we look at the history of West Central Alberta including the western part of the province between the North Saskatchewan River and the Smoky/Peace River. This is a look at the Indian history of Alberta from the ice age on up to the begining of historic times. The volume covers the deglaciation history and archaeological history of Western and Central Alberta. Both historically and prehistorically the region was a transition region lying between the Plains, Northern Woodlands and Plateau, making it different from that of the mainstream prehistory of Alberta. The volume also covers extensive prehistoric population/density reconstructions and presents considerable detail on the Pelican Lake culture. We also include some of the early legendary history of the area largely previously unknown except to the native peoples of the area. Support independent publishing: Buy this book on Lulu.
