Tales, Legends and Traditions

Drawing by Réal Bérard, Le Cheval Blanc, 1992

In this section, we present texts and associated archival dolcuments about tales, legends and traditions found in Manitoba and Western Canada.

A larger portion of the documents created for this section are currently available only on the French side of the Website. We are working to get them translated and they will be added to the list below as they become available. Thank you for your patience.

Note: The PDF documents below are translations of pages from our previous Website. Our apologies for any broken or missing links that originally would have lead back to now defunct pages. These PDFs were created to give temporary access to popular content, as we undertake the reconstruction of a new permanent Website.
