Lac Ste Anne Local Histories
the white settler's story

This was part of the area known as Rupert's Land, which the government of Canada acquired from the Hudson's Bay Company in 1870. The land was surveyed for settlement, and  settlers poured in from all over. The Metis and Native Indians continued to live here, but they were surrounded by English speaking settlers. With time, they too adopted the English language and customs of their neighbors. The published histories of the area are nearly all written in English and told from the settlers' point of view.
