BASKETS & BERRIES: Aboriginal Contributions to Aldershot Farm Economy
This is the story of a 1947 era Aldershot farm woman as told by professional storyteller Pauline Grondin, as she reminisces about life on the farm with an emphasis on the Native farm workers of the day.
The stories of these workers are seldom told and not generally recorded in the pages of history, yet their roles were vital to Canadian farms including those in Aldershot.
The lives of Native farm workers, their families and their contributions will be brought to light in these reminiscences.
The Métis Women’s Circle invites you to join us for this evening of information, refreshments and sharing with Storyteller PAULINE GRONDIN Tuesday, May 5, 2015 at 7:00 pm in The Holland Room (Main Level) of BURLINGTON CENTRAL LIBRARY, 2331 New Street, Burlington. This event is Open to Pubic and No Charge. For more information contact: email@example.com
