The Hartney / Cameron Pivotal
follows the format, process and products
developed by the Historic Resources Branch for this kind of initiative.
work involves close reading of our available history to determine a
detailed chronology of
and activities that defined the community from its settlement in 1880
approximately 1960. This timeline will then be compared with
national and international timelines (developed as templates by HRB) to
students especially (a key target of the project) to place Hartney
in a larger context. It is presumed that local educational personnel
consult with the heritage consultant to develop lesson plans that will
students create their own timelines.
The Hartney Pivotal Events project will also recast the
in the local histories and the timelines into texts that can be used
various other communication venues – like plaques, articles,
education materials, etc.
The project will also place the events in the history of Hartney into
context of the history of Western Manitoba, and seek to establish a
for addressing the roots of other Westman communities.
The results of the project will be available in print and digital
forms. Resources gathered during this project are available
elsewhere on this section (Heritage) of this site and on the Hartney /
Cameron Heritage Projects site:
