Subject: Family, Lifestyle, War, Food, Veterans, Music, Dance
Description: Stella and Jim were interviewed on July 27, 1999. A lot of this recording is inaudible so it is hard to decipher what is being said. This interview discusses their life in the Métis community of Crooked Lake, traditional Métis life ways, their family, and Mr. Lavalley’s experience as a soldier in the Canadian Army during the Second World War. Jim shares stories of his family living off of the land and the only things they bought tea and flour. Entertainment for Jim when he was growing up was going to dances or playing the fiddle.
