Description
he first suburb of Edmonton, the capital of the oil-rich western Canadian prairie province of Alberta, was arguably the Federal Government of Canada's Papaschase Indian reservation 163. Situated inconveniently close to the settlement of Edmonton-Strathcona that had grown up around a Hudson's Bay trading fort, the reservation was eliminated as its starving populace one-by-one 'took scrip' in the mid-to-late 1800s, and accepted payment to cede their Aboriginal rights to reservation land. Almost a century later around 1970, parts of the area of the reservation of the Papaschase Cree became the site of an idealistic project to create an affordable suburb, “Mill Woods”. This paper considers the respatialization of the former Indian Reservation, the "pentimento" or layers of Indigenous, colonial and modern occupancy of the land, and the current precarity and ethnic relations in the suburb of Mill Woods.
