Title: Henry, Hugh, Interview
Subject: Hugh, Henry, Swift Current Museum, Saskatchewan Landing
Description: This document is an interview with Hugh Henry, the former director of the Swift Current Museum. During his time at the museum, he established a dialogue with local Métis and First Nations to develop programming that would more accurately reflect the history of human habitation in southwest Saskatchewan.
Date: January 19, 2012
Type: Text Document
Abstract: During the course of 2011 and early 2012, the Gabriel Dumont Institute worked with Parks Canada to collect Métis-specific information relating to Fort Battleford, Fort Walsh, and Grasslands National Park. Interviews were conducted in the late fall of 2011 and early 2012. In some instances, community members preferred to send a written response to our questionnaire rather than be interviewed. While the majority of the interviewees and those who presented written responses were Métis, some were not. Most of the interviewees were from Saskatchewan, but a few were from Medicine Hat, Alberta and one was from Brooks, Alberta.
