Landed


What does it mean to be ‘Landed’ on the Prairies?

Prairie people have deep connections to the land.  Its wide open spaces, demanding climate, and physical distances created challenges for settlers who wanted to call it home. Some loved the promise of a clean slate, a new home and land they could own. Others hated the lonely whistle of the wind, the backbreaking work and the struggle to survive. But love it or hate it, they endured—building a unique culture, social institutions and activities that helped them cope and thrive.

Judy Weiss and Sharon Willas Rubuliak present their personal perspectives on what it means to be ‘Landed’. Drawing on their own roots as descendants of homesteaders in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, their work incorporates collected stories and events of yesterday as well as personal travels and experiences of today.
