          PR4007 · Collection · [Before 1983]

          The collection consists of research files related to the former Papaschase Indian Reserve. The collection includes photocopies of correspondence, reports, orders in council, and other related records. The copied records cover the years 1881-1975

          The Papaschase Band [Papaschase First Nation] signed to join Treaty 6 in 1877, but no action was taken by the Federal Government until 1880 to survey a reserve for the band. Due to a government error in the number of band members the surveyed reserve was smaller than should have been allotted. The Indian Agent responsible for the band transferred some members out when a complaint about this error was brought up, and the later commissioner pressured the band to surrender their land near Edmonton after years of pressure from Edmonton-area settlers. Band members were transferred mostly to the [Enoch Cree Nation] Enoch Band, and the land of Indian Reserve 136 was sold off. Band members were also convinced to relinquish Treaty Status through the North West Half-breed Commission, having been informed they would still retain title to their land. As of 2019, there were two separate groups representing descendants of the original Band. As of 2020, the Papaschase First Nation contended that Canada has acted contrary to the terms of the surrender.

          The collection contains student reports on the Papaschase Reservation, and these are accompanied by documents such as copies of land titles, land patent applications, memorandum of scrip applications and deeds, Treaty 6, and surrender documents. There are also maps, correspondence on land title status and sales, records of those receiving scrip and having been discharged from treaty, interview records for scrip applications, and correspondence on uses of the “abandoned” Papaschase Reserve.

          In addition, many of the folders contain indexes of sales, correspondence, and Library and Archives Canada records. There are also copies of relevant newspaper articles, handwritten notes and timelines, legal decisions, and the Métis Betterment Act.

          The collection also contains a map depicting how the Papaschase Reserve fit into quarter sections. This map is a “plan of the subdivision into sections of the lands reserved for the band of Chief Papaschase.” It has been marked with pencil and pen along several edges. This map was first printed in Ottawa in 1891, and follows the reserve’s re-survey in 1890.

The records include copies of documents from between 1876-1966, as well as handwritten timelines, research notes, and index cards for relevant records of RG-10, The Bulletin, and HBC Archives. The collection includes extensive records related to surrender and settlement.

Some of the records in this collection include accounts from missionaries, Indian agents, and other government officials describing the early years of the Sharphead Band’s transfer to their reserve, including their reactions to the Northwest Resistance.

          The band population declined, losing over 172 individuals to colds and other illnesses between 1886 and 1890. The majority of the remaining band members were amalgamated with the White Whale Lake Band (which is now Paul First Nation). The Sharphead Reserve was surrendered in 1897 and opened to settlement in 1899.

          Canada's History
          Series · 1873-2015

          The series consists of original township plans or surveys, subdivision plans, survey diagrams, township registers, and related maps and settlement plans.

          Official Township survey plans are the result of official surveys conducted as early as January 1873 and still occur today. In 1871, the first of 3 Dominion Land surveys in the prairie provinces began west of the first meridian in Manitoba, followed by surveys in 1880 and 1881. The surveyors worked on the principles of astronomy and divided the province of Alberta into a grid system composed of ranges, townships, and meridians. Ranges number approximately 1-30 running East to West from each of the three meridians, the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth while the townships (1-127) run from North to South from the International Boundary to the Northwest Territories. These plans became official if they were approved and confirmed by the Surveyor General or after 1930 by the Director of Surveys. For each township, it is possible to have numerous editions. It was the policy of the Office of the Surveyor General to create a new edition every time additional survey work was done, corrections made or updates to standard changes adopted. The scale on the maps is described in terms of chains, where 100 links = 1 chain, 1 chain = 66 feet.

          Copies of these township plans were then used as a visual indexing tool for creation of homestead leases, dispositions, and other uses of the land. It allowed a government to draw the area of land and identity of the entity who leases, purchases, or otherwise makes use of the land. These were often part of large ledgers or registers that became part of this series.
