Living Heritage: Our values, beliefs and ways of life shape our sense of identity, belonging and place, connecting past, present and future.

Living Heritage Projects

Coal in Coronach - The Coal in Coronach living heritage project explores the importance of coal to the community - from the early days of underground mining to the present, and asks the question: what's next for coal in Coronach?

 Val Marie Elevator Living Heritage Project - This living heritage project is a collaboration between Heritage Saskatchewan and the community of Val Marie in homage to its grain elevator.

gee meeyo pimawtshinawn (It Was a Good Life) - Saskatchewan Métis Road Allowance Memories - Heritage Saskatchewan is very proud to partner with the Gabriel Dumont Institute to publish this work. The stories and art within it contain courage, humour, and resilience, and tell us much about Michif living heritage on the prairies. 

Covid-19 Culture - Throughout the first wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, we documented the experiences of people throughout our province. How have culture and heritage helped interpret, cope, and look beyond the crisis? In what ways has life changed, or stayed the same? With the help of six Community Coordinators, we have collected experiences from our communities.

Black & Rural Saskatchewan - In collaboration with artist and folklorist, Shayna Jones, and in partnership with the Saskatchewan African Canadian Heritage Museum will feature stories from individuals of African descent throughout rural areas in our province that highlight their connection to heritage as people of colour.
