It's another Culture Days episode! Join Kevin Power as he heads to Preeceville, SK after spending time in Yorkton (episode 65). The Preeceville Heritage Museum committee pulls out all the stops with an "Ethnic Desert Night". Prepare to have your salivary glands activated as several of Kevin's guests talk about their cultural background and how the dishes they've prepared tie in with their heritage. You'll also hear from Lorne, one of Preeceville's former history teachers who talks about how this town came to be, how it has changed over the years, and the history of the Doukhobour's in this part of the province. And as far as all of those calories on display at this event, I'm told that it is only fattening if you swallow!

It's a Culture Days 2015 retrospective as Kevin Power travels to Yorkton to explore how that community celebrates during the nation wide movement honouring our culture. This is Kevin's first stop during the weekend, but as you'll see, there is a common theme in all three of the Culture Day's podcast episodes coming up. That theme is FOOD! This episode features coffee talk and the sounds and smells in the kitchen where East Indian food is prepared by locals, and shared with dozens of Yorkton residents. You'll also learn a bit about soapbox derby races.  Thanks to SaskCulture for the support given to help these events happen.

Gary Edwards is a Cultural Support Provider for Residential School Survivors at All Nations Hope in Regina. A survivor himself, Gary was rounded up by a gunboat and issued to a residential school in Ile Ste. Croix at the age of 2. Gary talks about his experience, painting pictures with his words- his phrasing almost poetic. He speaks of his journey to healing, the Indigenous way of life, and the many guides who have supported him on his path. It is my hope, as it is Gary's, that someone hears this episode who needs to hear it in order to help in their own healing, As Gary says: "Let's hope that one day this conversations never happens".

If you ever find yourself playing a Saskatchewan music trivia game you'll want this guy on your team! And if you are ever in search of the perfect Saskatchewanian to be the subject of a "6 degrees of separation" game, well look no further! Taron Cochrane has received many accolades in our province and it's likely because every cell of his being vibrates with the Saskatchewan music scene. But beyond that, Taron tirelessly gives of his time and talents in so many ways; driven by passion, motivation, community involvement, and volunteerism.

It's the first SaskScapes podcast recorded live in front an audience at the Milestone Library. Kevin Power and his guests Deanna Brown and Jim Hadfield talk about everyone's favourite subject - FOOD!  Deanna Brown has put Milestone, SK on the map by being one of the finalists of the wildly popular television show "Masterchef Canada". Jim Hadfield has had a life long career in business and took that savvy and his passion for baking and founded his own company "Jim's Buns" - and based on his loyal client following, his buns are a hit!  And amidst all of the fun and laugher of this episode you might even pick up a tip on what foods to have with you should you find yourself stranded on a deserted island.

Kevin Power brings voice to the "60's Scoop" as a feature story in the SaskScapes season. The "60's Scoop" is a dark chapter in our Canadian and First Nations history and culture. There are four episodes in total which were recorded over the past few months. These are the stories of a few...there are thousands more. Thank you sincerely, to these four guests, for being generous enough to share this part of your story. We all have much to learn from you. 

In this episode Kevin is joined by Lauren Reid.
