Indigenous Material Finding Aid

This item consists of the thematic finding aid for records relating to Indigenous peoples. The City of Edmonton Archives has a variety of material "about" Indigenous peoples, consisting of the "official" records of the City where it has interactions with them. Because jurisdiction for Indigenous people was held at the federal government level, there are not many of these records and they tend to present snapshots in time, rather than the full story of the City's relationships with Indigenous people. This Finding Aid helps to bring together a wide variety of sources of information for the researcher, but does not represent a comprehensive collection of all historical sources relating to Indigenous political, social, economic and cultural development. There is a brief overview of how some of the records came into being and a note on completing research projects with this material at the beginning of the Finding Aid which should be read for context and for the researcher's self care.
