Histoire administrative

The Department of Indian Affairs is the federal body engaging with First Nations in a fiduciary relationship. In 1860, the responsibility for Indian Affairs was transferred from the British Crown to the Province of Canada. Since the transfer, the responsibility for Indian Affairs was passed to various government departments between 1873-1965. In 1966 the Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development was created. They would later change name to the Indian Northern Affairs Canada. Today the department is known as Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada.

Histoire administrative

The Lesser Slave Lake Indian Agency was the regional office of the Department of Indian Affairs overseeing the area of northern Alberta, northeastern British Columbia, and northwestern Saskatchewan in the Treaty 8 region. The Agency consisted of reserves including Sucker Creek, Sturgeon Lake, Driftpile River, Swan River, Sawridge, Grouard, Wabasca, Boyer River, Upper Hay River, Hudson’s Hope, Fort Vermillion, Little Red River, Fort St. John and Grande Prairie. Eventually the agency divided into the smaller districts of Fort St. John, Fort Vermillion, Fort Norman, and Lesser Slave Lake.

Historique de la conservation

The records were given to the Lesser Slave Lake Indian Regional Council when the Agency dissolved. The Lesser Slave Lake Indian Regional Council later transferred the records into the LSLIRC-TARR Archives.

Portée et contenu

The fonds consists of Lesser Slave Lake Agency’s original district records of treaty annuity paylists and interest payments. Annuity payments are paid annually to registered First Nations who are members of communities who have adhered to Treaties with the Federal Crown. The paylists maintain an annual record of those who have been paid. The district copies are one of two versions of paylists kept by the Department of Indian Affairs. The district retained a local version and another would be forwarded to headquarters in Ottawa. While the two copies should be identical, historians have found discrepancies between versions.
