Name of creator
The Lesser Slave Lake Indian Regional Council - Treaty Aboriginal Research (LSLIRC-TARR) Program was established in 1996 in Slave Lake, Alberta, with an additional office in High Prairie. It operates under the auspices of the Lesser Slave Lake Indian Regional Council (LSLIRC).
The Elder Interviews were transferred into the Archives from the LSLIRC-TARR Program.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of First Nation Elder Interviews conducted by the Lesser Slave Lake Indian Regional Council - Treaty Aboriginal Rights Research (LSLIRC-TARR) Program as support for the Program’s on-going treaty and aboriginal rights research and Specific Claims work. Predominantly interviews were done with Elders from Alberta Treaty 8 First Nation communities. Many interviews have been transcribed.
Some sound recordings are showing signs of step-packing and warping. Playback of original recordings is not recommended.
