Scope and content

The fonds consists of recordings and partial transcripts of interviews with Yukon First Nations women about their traditional and contemporary lives. The interviews were part of the Yukon Women's Project. Clara Frost, Sara Able, Mira Moses, Renee Charlie, and Jeanne Harbottle discuss the traditional lifestyles of native women, including medicine, food preservation, childbirth and the sexual division of labour. Judy Gingell, Peggy Nolan and Rachel Dawson describe the problems faced by contemporary native women, such as the loss of native status, discrimination and employment. Marnie Ryder, Hilda Hellaby and Mattie Chapman discuss public health service in various Indian villages, Anglican Church history, residential schools and their own lives in Yukon. Recordings of these interviews were donated. Yukon Archives has transcripts but no recordings for interviews with Bessie Lawrence, Mary Rich, Maggie Waddington, Edith Bohmen and Mary Charlie. Interviews were conducted by Jenny Jack in 1974.
