READ MY BOOK

Ethnic diversity the focus of Settling Saskatchewan When I first moved to Saskatchewan in 1968 to work in the Sociology Department at the University of Saskatchewan, I was intrigued by the many ethnic bloc settlements which formed the “cultural mosaic” of the prairies, and I soon embarked on research for my PhD, focus- Alan B. Anderson sing on ethnic persistence or change within these settlements. Over the span of almost five decades, I maintained a keen interest in ethnic settlements in Saskatchewan,

occasionally writing and lecturing on settlement histories for various ethnic organizations — French, German, Ukrainian and Scandinavian. Then I was responsible for the ethnic settlement section of the Atlas of Saskatchewan (1999) and was the contributing editor on ethnic settlements and demography for the Encyclopedia of Saskatchewan (2005). This work inevitably led to the idea of combining all this accumulated information into a single volume; the result is Settling Saskatchewan. While over time there have been quite a few books on the history of Saskatchewan, as well as numerous local community histories and occasional histories of particular ethnic groups, a comprehensive volume tying all this together

had not been produced. So my book attempts to accomplish this in focussing specifically on the ethnic diversity of the Saskatchewan population, describing the historical development of ethnic and religious settlements and changing demographics. The book takes the reader from an aboriginal settlement within what is today the Province of Saskatchewan, through the multitude of bloc settlements established by British ethnic groups, Germans and Mennonites, Ukrainians, other Eastern European ethnic groups, Francophones, and Scandinavian groups, to the most recent immigrants adding still more diversity to urban populations. En route we learn about the remarkable origins of our people: that social

visits took place between English and French aristocrats, that most people of German origin arrived not from Germany but from Eastern European settlements, that no less than 32 French settlements were established primarily by immigrants direct from Europe rather than from Quebec, that vast areas of Saskatchewan were incorporated into Ukrainian and planned German settlements, that Welsh settlers came all the way from Argentina, and Black settlers from Oklahoma. Indeed the increasing diversity of the Saskatchewan population makes for a fascinating and continuing story. Settling Saskatchewan is available from McNally-Robinson Booksellers, Chapters, Indigo and university bookstores.

Saskatoon’s up and coming drag superstars had a chance to show off their best performances while competing for bragging rights. The first annual Prairie Pride: Next Generation Talent Competition was held in conjuction with Prairie Pride Divo and Diva at Diva’s Nightclub on June 6. The Divo and Diva competition is in its seventh year and was created to foster new talent in Saskatchewan. A King and Queen of Pride is crowned each year to represent the community during Pride Week festivities. According to organizers, creating a new competition for those aged 18 and under, has made Pride Week more inclusive for that age group. Money raised at the event will be donated to Trans Saskatchewan. The winner, who will receive a free float in the Pride Parade on June 21 and free access to all events during Pride Week, was Chance Briere.

— Michael Kors with a pinch of Manitobah Mukluks. She wants them to be handmade by aboriginal women, from sustainable materials like deer hide, and

she wants to use some of the proceeds to help empower First Nations women. After years of pitches and competitions, things are picking up and

I see big things for her for sure. It’s lonely as an entrepreneur, people don’t understand but you’re mostly solo. These are the toughest times. You have to use your gut and work your butt off. — Kendal Netmaker

“It’s a good cause?” She smiles at her humble intonation. Devon is 26 and ready to succeed without shedding her values and humility. “I’ve come to understand all the disadvantages that indigenous women face. I experienced a lot of those disadvantages in my own life,” she said. She spent the first six years of her life on a reserve, then moved to Meadow Lake. She said once she got to middle school, the classes were essentially segregated into groups of native and white students. In her life, she’s witnessed and dealt with mental and physical abuse, racism, bullying, and being taken advantage of. “It stems from a lot of systematic, ingrained stuff, but it gets really deep so I don’t want to go there,” said Devon who got a degree from the University of Saskatchewan in political science.

■ ■ ■ ■ Devon is quietly confident. Her words are soft and thoughtful but her actions are bold. For the last few years she has persistently entered competitions for entrepreneurs. This year she’s won $7,500 from Michaelle Jean’s Young Arts Entrepreneur Award and $3,500 from the Mino-Bimaadiziwin Business Planning Award. Last October, she won a trip to Malaysia to represent Canada in a young entrepreneur’s competition. She has also got a crowdfunding campaign rolling, with hopes of raising $10,000 for her business. People who pledge receive gifts like locally designed accessories, business workshops and can secure the very first SheNative bags.

I’ve come to understand all the disadvantages that indigenous women face. I experienced a lot of those disadvantages in my own life. — Fiddler

“It’s kind of hard right now because I don’t think a lot of people know what it is locally, and I need to be in front of people telling them about it,” she said. “I’m getting more pledges for being out there than from being online.” She needs the money to purchase equipment like an industrial sewing machine for leather. She also has to find a facility, secure a lease and hire a couple of aboriginal women to sew the purses. ■ ■ ■ ■ Devon says a big part of her life and business philosophy is to surround herself with positive people. She is involved with a tight-knit group of fellow entrepreneurs in the city. Kendal Netmaker, founder of Neechie Gear, a Saskatoonbased company that gives back to the community, was a major source of inspiration for Devon. “It’s always been a dream, like a childhood ambition, but after seeing that he could do it, it was really inspiring to me,” she said.

Devon Fiddler plans on hiring aboriginal women to make her SheNative handbags come to life.

Neechie Gear started a few years ago and now sells clothing across Canada. “I see big things for her for sure,” said Netmaker. “It’s lonely as an entrepreneur, people don’t understand but you’re mostly solo. These are the toughest times. You have to use your gut and work your butt off.” She has also formed a close relationship with founder of shopindigenous.ca, Heather Abbey, who also manages social media for SheNative.

“Devon always wants to help others, and although she does often put herself last, she’s the sweetest person. When she was first starting, she was so shy to pitch and get out there, now you can tell she knows what she’s doing. She’s confident as a leader and business person, and she’s not stopping,” said Abbey. All three represent growth — according to the 2011 census, five per cent of the aboriginal labour force was self-employed. While Abbey doesn’t feel racism, she and Devon stand out. “I sure feel like a token in a lot of events, we’re

usually the only natives present,” says Abbey. “People remember us but it seems like we have a bit more to prove and we have to work harder. On the flip side there are competitions especially for aboriginals and we have to take advantage of every opportunity that’s available.”

■ ■ ■ ■ Devon is collaborating with the Academy of Fashion Design in Saskatoon to make the purses. “I think I could do design but I’m more of the visionary. I put all the pieces together,” she said. She envisions affordable, but high-end, purses and will work with indigenous graphic designers to make striking, native patterns for the linings. The outer-layers will be soft leather. When she was young, she dreamt of being a designer and would constantly sketch colourful outfits. Her mom, who is the manager at Waterhen Lake band office, said she hoped she’d become an accountant.

I’m very proud for what she’s accomplished and how she’s never given up. She’s had some doors slammed in her face and she just goes on to the next opportunity. – Judy Fiddler

“I’m very proud for what she’s accomplished and how she’s never given up. She’s had some doors slammed in her face and she just goes on to the next opportunity,” she said. Devon expects her prototypes to be ready by July. ■ ■ ■ ■ Devon’s journey hasn’t been easy but now her ambition and confidence are clear. “When I was growing up I wished I wasn’t First Nations because I didn’t want to experience what I was feeling,” she said. Now she is creating a business to share her culture with the world and be an example of a successful aboriginal woman. “The only reason why I changed my own circumstances is because I wanted to change myself. It all comes from self-motivation and putting myself in

situations where I’m not at risk.” Once she starts making money, she promises to give 2.5 per cent of profits to empower aboriginal women and increase that margin every year. She’s looking for a partnership with an organization that shares her vision. “I want them to realize they can be empowered and the only way they can get to that point is if they want to change themselves, so we’ll be giving back to programs (with) positive opportunities for self-empowerment.” Although her demeanour is calm, she is passionate and excited about what she is doing. She has been working full-time to get her business started and is grateful to see SheNative gaining momentum. There are still details to organize and capital to secure but all signs indicate that she is heading toward success. “Sometimes I amaze myself. I don’t know how I came to where I am. Really, it’s kind of weird.

SINGER-SONGWRITER

Nichol a fixture in Regina’s folk community By Ashley Martin The first Regina Folk Festival was a two-day concert at Campion College, University of Saskatchewan Regina Campus, 45 years ago. At age 16, Roberta Nichol was one of the youngest performers there. Remember Pemmican Pearl, the beloved songstress of the Buffalo Days annual fair? From 1989 to ’92, that was Nichol. And when you hear the words “Hawaiian sun sale,” you know that long-running radio jingle I’m talking about, right? Thank Nichol for the earworm. The Regina woman has been performing for five decades, and singing even longer. Growing up in Coronation Park, there was always music on in the family’s home. Nichol’s mom Audrey played piano and sang along to records from the Book Exchange on South Railway Street. From children’s music, to big band, to Bob Dylan, to Ian and Sylvia Tyson, to Joan Baez, Nichol listened to all of it. She’s been singing in public since she was 10, at church or in choirs. In Grade 8, her dad John came home with a $2 Playtime guitar. Even though it was cracked on the front, it served its purpose and she learned the basics. In 1967, the summer before Grade 9, Nichol and two friends performed at stages around town for the inaugural Buffalo Days. At the first Regina Folk Festival, she was in awe of Humphrey and the Dump Trucks and Don Freed, and at the reality of the event. “It was just excitement, that, ‘My gosh, this is a folk festival in Regina,’” said Nichol. She was an enthusiastic member of the Regina Folk Guild, singing and attending meetings at the Old Gold on South Albert Street during her high school years at Thom Collegiate. Folk Guild founder Dick Jack

would laugh at her — “‘Geez Roberta, you’re not even legal,’” she recalled. “(I was) kind of a baby of the group, no question about that.” In Grade 12, she got a job at CKCK radio, recording a news-in-song show called This Week Has Seven Days. Though she’d been saying from childhood she wanted to be a teacher when she grew up, in Grade 12 she changed her mind: She decided to be a singer. Her mom talked her out of it. Get a teaching degree to fall back on, she said. But once Nichol earned her teaching certificate, her mom had this advice: “Don’t you ever stop singing.” Barring a few years’ hiatus from teaching to tour, Nichol taught Grade 4 and music; her students would start

every day singing. She retired from teaching in 2010. Her music career persisted over the years. She played in a jug band, Everyday Dirt, with Peter Sawchyn, Bob Evans and Georgina (Betts) Arntzen. Then she played in Cloudburst with the aforementioned group, plus Jack Semple, Ray Bell and Rob Bryanton. That was when Bryanton suggested they quit their day jobs to go on tour. “We all said, ‘OK!’” They appeared on CBC’s Country West variety show in 1984-86 and toured Western Canada with the Allan Sisters. Nichol released her first album on cassette tape in 1991, which marked

her first real foray into songwriting. Her followup, Cookin’ At the Kettle, was released on CD and tape in 1995. Then for 19 years, she came out with nothing new. But lately, Nichol found lyrics swimming around in her head, to the point that she’d have to rush home from walks with her Beagle Gracie to get a song down on paper. Bryanton suggested she should do a new album, and she agreed. It’s like a “second childhood.” Now there are two albums on the way — one is a recollection called Looking Back. The other is titled It’s All About The Journey, named in honour of her partner Laurie Kozey, who died of scleroderma in 2002 at age 40.

Nichol’s subject matter ranges from her former students, to her maternal grandparents (Angus and Leona), to milestone birthdays (I’m Turning 40, and its revival I’m Turning 60), to her pets, and on and on. “I’m not ready to go anywhere yet, but when you do look back, you think, ‘Man, what a wonderful ride,’ and you need to write about it.” The songs come to life with the help of her longtime friends and ex-bandmates, Bryanton, Evans and Semple. “I am so blessed to have those guys in my life.” Also on the new album, Tara Semple plays flute and Jason Heistad plays fiddle. amartin@leaderpost.com Twitter.com/LPAshleyM

G A R D E N I N G I N S A S K AT C H E WA N

Ground covers for dry shade: Part 1 By Sara Williams Mention “ground cover” and many gardeners visibly tense up if they’ve had experience with the freely spreading goutweed and ribbon grass. Yes, quite literally, ground covers are plants that cover ground — often aggressively and without inhibition. But in the right location, ground covers have many and varied functions. Use them to solve landscaping problems rather than to create them. One problem area that can be solved with ground covers is dry shade — a north side of a building that can’t be irrigated or (the worst scenario) under the shade of a spruce tree. These areas are not used as lawn, may be inaccessible, and yet may be visible and in-yourface. But the right ground cover will survive with little maintenance and provide interest through colour and texture. To improve your chances of success, start by amending the planting holes with organic matter. Mulch thoroughly between the plants and water deeply through their first growing season. Once established, they should do just fine in dry shade. Here are some prairie hardy ground covers to consider: Windflower (Anemone sylvestris) Produces pure white fragrant flowers in spring, has attractive dark blue-green foliage, divided into three to five distinct lobes. They are 30 to 50 cm high and easily propagated by division. The double-flowering form Flore Pleno is somewhat shorter with flowers resembling a cushion mum. In spite of its dainty appearance, it is as tough as the single form. Bergenia or pig squeak (Bergenia cordifolia) One of the most adaptable ground covers for the prairies, equally at home in sun or shade, with or without water. It’s called pig squeak be-

cause that’s the sound one hears if the leaves are rubbed between one’s thumb and forefinger. The large round leathery leaves, 30 to 45 cm in height, remain attractive throughout the growing season, turning a purple-red in the fall. Small, waxy, pink flowers are produced on short spikes in the spring. It was much appreciated by Gertrude Jekyll, the British landscape designer who helped reinvent the modern perennial border, and it became known as one of her signature plants. Bunchberry (Cornus canadensis) A dwarf dogwood native to the boreal forest where it forms an understory below trees. It produces white floral bracts followed by red berries. The evergreen foliage turns reddish in the fall and persists over winter. Only 15 cm tall, it’s a perfect ground cover for a small space. It will perform better with moisture, but once established will persist if competition from other plants is not too great.

SUBMITTED PHOTO

False Solomon’s seal (Smilacina stellata) Amazingly drought tolerant if put to the test — as I found when I accidentally moved one to an area that is never watered. White, starlike flowers are produced in early May. Only 30 cm tall, the light green leaves turn golden in fall. Siberian barren strawberry (Waldsteinia ternata) A plant that deserves much greater availability. It’s tough, good looking, hardy, and adaptable to sun or shade. The common name, Siberian barren strawberry, speaks volumes: it’s ruggedly hardy, barren (do not expect it to produce fruit) and its leaves resemble those of the strawberry. Only 10 to 15 cm tall, it’s equally at home in sun or shade, with or without water. Small, bright yellow flowers bloom from late spring to early summer. Williams, inducted into the Agri-

Q. I’m deciding whether I’m his “rebound,” or if the guy’s actually falling for me. He’s 33, divorced eight months ago from an eight-year marriage. We’ve been seeing each other a lot. He does really romantic things for me. He played a song because he wanted me to hear the lyrics — it sounded like he was giving me a message that he’s falling for me. But the other night a song came up that made him really sad, which he said related to his marriage. He explained that unfortunately she still loves him and he feels bad about what he did (it ended due to an affair he had). I’ve had trust issues before, but I don’t feel anything’s going on as far as his not being exclusive with me. He still lives in the home they built together, and is trying to sell it, but he still has a lot of her stuff around — her hair conditioner and toothbrush in the shower. He tends to mention her a lot. Since he was cheating on her and they’ve divorced, and he seems really into me, why would he play a song she sang to him and makes him sad? Is it possible he’s over her but still feeling guilt? Or, maybe I’m just filling the void of loneliness for him? Am I His Rebound? A. Few people come out of a divorce without some sadness… whether from guilt, sense of failure, or loss of innocence. They’re ready to move on, but they don’t just obliterate their memories, from which some triggers can continue to upset them. Eight months isn’t a long break from his married past. He may be falling for you, but still responding to those triggers. If you’re staying over at his place, gently

Ask Ellie

ask if he’d remove her personal items from the shower. If he continues to talk about his “sadness,” suggest he consider counselling to get past it. However, if he’s still expressing nostalgia after six months of dating, tell him you need to know if this relationship is his rebound or for real.

Q. I love spending time with this new man. But it’s only been a month and things are moving so fast! I’m already helping myself in the kitchen and calling him “Babe,” while he’s brushing his teeth in front of me. We’ve already said we’d both prefer that neither of us see anyone else. I don’t want to ruin something potentially good. I don’t want to say I’m busy when I’m not, but he’s always asking me out! How can I put healthy boundaries on this after being so available? Rushed but Concerned A. Just do it. You’re right to be concerned. A big rush often indicates insecurity on the other person’s part, which later reveals a tendency to control. Be warm, honest, but firm: “We must slow down if we’re to make this last. It means still seeing our friends on our own, and having time alone, even while dating exclusively.”

Local chefs cooking up ways to help food bank

By Jenn Sharp Life gets busy in the summer. That spells bad news for food banks. Donations always drop off in the summer months as people are gone on holidays or busy with activities. A free cookbook was released this spring to help combat the problem. Catelli teamed up with chefs in 15

cities to make the Catelli Pasta Plus Five cookbook. The chefs created a gourmet dish using Catelli pasta and five affordable ingredients that weren’t hard to find. In Saskatoon, Wild Cuisine Catering’s Thomas Brown made a Wild Italian Rotini Pesto dish. “I like Catelli’s pasta to begin with and I thought it would be cool to do

a nice, little healthy take on it,” he says. Brown used raw sunflower seeds, oil, garlic, chili and Havarti cheese. “My trick was to keep it within a budget — not everyone has tons of money to spend on family dinners.” The cookbook is one part of Catelli’s national campaign called Help Us Feed the Hope. For every box of

Catelli pasta bought at a Federated Co-op in Western Canada, a portion of pasta will donated to the food bank. A portion of pasta will be also be donated for each “like” on Catelli’s Facebook page. There are currently over 824,000 likes on the page — the goal is to reach one million by the end of June.

SHARP EATS Leo Pantel, executive chef at the Conexus Arts Centre in Regina also made a recipe for the cookbook: Summer Bow Pasta. Pantel’s pasta is not difficult to prepare, but it is quick, simple and flavourful. The pasta salad uses olive oil, Kalamata olives, tomatoes and fresh marjoram. Pantel and his staff routinely donate food leftover from banquets to Souls Harbour Rescue Mission and the Carmichael Outreach. There’s often a lot leftover, especially when a projected number of people don’t show up for events. “There’s only so much THOMAS BROWN’S TIPS beef you can trim for soup FOR COOKING ON A … we don’t reuse food so BUDGET stuff that’s perishable we ■ Meal planning saves donate,” he says adding money and time.

In the classes, he emphasizes buying fresh local ingredients, while sticking to a budget. That isn’t always the easiest task, though. “If you buy lots of local ingredients, you need to cut costs somewhere because it adds up. It’s not cheap being local and healthy so you have to know where to not sacrifice quantity for quality.” One of the ways he does this is by showing students how to break down a whole chicken and use all of the parts in different meals. “If you can buy healthy food but spread it out, it’s way cheaper than buying processed food one meal at a time,” he says. The Catelli Pasta Plus Five cookbook can be downloaded for free at www.catelli.ca.
