Harvesting oats. Brightsand.


Since 1957, the Saskatchewan History & Folklore Society, Inc. (SHFS), has vigilantly sought to preserve our province’s past through a vast collection of stories, poems, songs, memoirs, interview podcasts, old letters and pictures. Additionally, the society seeks to capture a “snapshot” of present day Saskatchewan for future generations.

On our website you will find information about our quarterly publication Folklore, our annual History on the Road Motor Coach Tours, our upcoming SHFS events, and how to become a member. The website also features audio historical records, access to our extensive Baker Slide collection images, and contact information for the SHFS, including the board of directors. We encourage you to explore our website for all we have to offer.


IN THE NEWS: The mini-documentary about the NWMP Trail Walk is done! Here is the link to its trailer:


This site was created through a partnership between SHFS and the University of Saskatchewan’s Educational Technology and Design graduate program. The website and Everett Baker slide database were designed by graduate students in ETAD 874, “Advanced Instructional Design” and advisors from the SHFS Board of Directors.
A special thanks to the Saskatchewan Western Development Museum for digitizing the Everett Baker Slide Collection.
