Local Culture project

  • CA BMUFA 0003
  • Collection
  • 2003-2005

The goal of the Local Culture and Diversity on the Prairies project was to document everyday life, ethno-cultural identity and regional variation among people of Ukrainian, French, German and English heritage. How did people from diverse backgrounds interact, adapt and become "prairie Canadians" in the first half of the twentieth century? What was the relationship between cultural inheritance and local community participation? How did they express their various identities on the local community level? The project was designed to generate a great deal of documentary information and primary resources for further research in many aspects of these people's lives.

The collection consists of some 800 hours of audio recordings documenting life in approximately 450 different locations on the Prairies and across Canada prior to 1939, as well as video recordings, photographs, documents, field notes and other material associated with the project.

Saving Ukrainian Canadians' Heritage: SUCH project

  • CA BMUFA 0008
  • Collection
  • 1971-1972

The goal of the “Saving Ukrainian Canadians’ Heritage” oral history project was to document stories of Ukrainian pioneers in the Prairie Provinces. The project was led by CYMK, and its digitization and revival are a collaboration between the Kule Folklore Centre and the Ukrainian Museum of Canada-Saskatoon. It consists of hundreds of hours of interviews conducted in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario from 1971-1972. There are also 700 photographs: some historical, and others – from the time of the project.
"Under the federal government sponsored plan for student employment "Opportunities for Youth", the Canadian Ukrainian Youth Association is sponsoring project "S.U.C.H."- Save the Ukrainian Canadian Heritage. This Association, which may be briefly designated as "C.Y.M.K" is a nationally based youth organization founded in 1931. Its prime aim is to foster, promote and develop in the national life of Canada the finest cultural elements and traditions of the Ukrainian people. The national office of CYMK, located in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, serves as an information bureau, a programme source, public relations office and an organizer of various workshops, conferences and conventions.
"Project SUCH is research oriented. The main objective is to record and collect information and artifacts of historical and ethnological significance from various Ukrainian communities across eastern and Western Canada. This will be primarily accomplished by recorded interviews with Ukrainian pioneers and through public meetings to turn the attention of local youth and adults to the precious nature of their heritage.
"Specifically, the research will be carried out by talking to pioneer settlers, recording folklore, songs, traditions and pioneer accounts of life in Canada, collecting books, records and accounts of historical interest from the Ukrainian community.
"Fifteen students will be doing field work in Ukrainian communities throughout Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario for the summer months, with an additional student coordinator in Saskatoon overseeing the entire project.
"The necessity for work of this nature has been evident for some time but lack of funds has impeded the realization to a great extent. This project as SUCH will provide and opportunity for our young students to make a valuable contribution to Canadian culture- to study the process of acculturation- preservation and adaptation of one's cultural heritage.
"As a result of this work various groups and agencies will benefit, e.g., universities, provincial tourist bureaus, Dominion and Provincial Archives and Museums, local Ukrainian community organizations and public libraries. It is therefore, sincerely hoped that the communities will welcome these young students and where necessary, provide assistance and support."

Taste of Ukraine restaurant collection

  • CA BMUFA 0046
  • Collection
  • ca. 1990

The collection consists of the brochure of the Taste of Ukraine restaurant and the menu. The Taste of Ukraine restaurant was located near Chipman, Alberta. The house was originally built by John Wyrha (1908-1911) near Caliento, MB, approximately 10 miles from Vita, MB, near the US border. The house was purchased by Michael and Evdokia Mushaluk, parents of Mrs. Fedoryshyn and then sold to Stephen Fedoryshyn in 1935. Stephen and Mary Fedoryshyn lived in the house until 1967. They had two daughters: Roslyn who married John Bohonos, and Mrs. Stephen Verchomin, wife of Peter Verchomin.

In the summer of 1979, Henry Panych purchased the house and on Labour Day weekend, he and his brother Fred carefully recorded the layout of the house and tagged every timber and material (except the thatch). With the help of two local people the house was dismantled and loaded on a Doucet Transport high boy and hauled to Chipman, AB.

In 1980 the house was assembled in a new location using original timber. The decayed material was replaced. The unique 12 foot chimney was reconstructed by Jim Serink and the rye straw for the thatched roof was made by John Stanko.
