Location: Maple Creek, SK

 

Metis Cowboys on the Western Front - SW Oldtimers MuseumThe museum’s Great War Project has now identified over 2,000 individuals from S.W. Sask who participated in the Great War (WWI) 1914-1918.  This presentation will zero-in a few of the Metis cowboys from the Cypress Hills area who left S.W. Sask. to fight for King and country overseas.  This presentation puts a human face on the “war to end all wars” through the telling of the dramatic, and sometimes tragic, stories of people from our area who braved service to the young Dominion of Canada. Refreshments served. All are welcome!
