The Old Bone Trail: Remembering The Legacy Of The Métis
The Old Bone Trail, a historic route that was once used by Métis people to transport bison bones from the Saskatoon area to the railway yards, is being highlighted for its role in preserving the memory and legacy of the Métis in Canada. The trail, which is still in use today, is part of the friends of the Saskatoon Afforestation Areas Inc. initiative, which seeks to bring awareness to the Indigenous and Métis history of the land.
The Métis first used the Old Bone Trail in the late 1800s to transport bison bones from the area to the railway yards. The bones were used for fertilizer, and the Métis were able to make a living from their work. The trail was an important part of the Métis’ economy and is still remembered today.
The Friends are now working to preserve the memory of the Old Bone Trail and the Métis who used it. They have created a digital wayfinding app that includes virtual markers that highlight the Indigenous and Métis history of the land. This app allows users to access information about the trail and its importance to the Métis people.
The Old Bone Trail is a reminder of the resilience and strength of the Métis people, who were able to make a living from their hard work and ingenuity. The Friends is working to ensure that the history of the Old Bone Trail and the Métis are not forgotten, and that the legacy of the Métis is preserved for future generations.
The Old Bone Trail is an important part of the Indigenous and Métis history of the land, and the Friends are working to ensure that it remains part of the landscape. Through their work, they are preserving the memory of the Métis and their contribution to the local economy. By using the digital wayfinding app, users can access information about the trail and its importance to the Métis people. The Old Bone Trail is an important part of the local history and it is important that it is remembered and preserved.
