Local Culture and Diversity on the Prairies

Researching ethnicity through vernacular culture made it possible to incorporate a wide range of individuals, including those who identified with their ethnic inheritance, actively or passively; people of multiple heritage; and others for whom ethnic background was of little importance. In fact, the project specifically emphasized hybrid and "Canadianized" forms of vernacular culture and newly created traditions, in addition to those brought over by the first immigrants.
