Daly Pivotal Events Projects
follows the format, process and products
developed by the Historic Resources Branch for this kind of initiative.
work involves close reading of our available history to determine a
detailed chronology of
and activities that defined the community from its settlement in 1880
approximately 1960. This timeline will then be compared with
national and international timelines (developed as templates by HRB) to
students especially (a key target of the project) to place Rivers
in a larger context. It is presumed that local educational personnel
consult with the heritage consultant to develop lesson plans that will
students create their own timelines.
The project will also place the events in the history of Rivers into
context of the history of Western Manitoba, and seek to establish a
for addressing the roots of other Westman communities.
The results of the project will be available in print and digital
forms. Resources gathered during this project are available
elsewhere in this section.
