Transcript of The Interior Plains Region

By:Laura K 5B Roots of the region! Quality of Life! Who First Lived Here? Farming and Ranching Today! Towns use to,and still do, develop around a resource.There are large deposits of oil, gas ,coal, and other minerals underground. Other deposits that are amongst the plains are of salt,gypsum, and potash.Potash can be found in fertilizer.
Some natural resources are small groups of trees, rivers or water and fertile soil.People in the past were starting to use all of the resources they could to their advantage.
Jobs are created because of people discovering natural resources.As resources are dicovered so are jobs and communities.All of the communities are different sizes depending on how much of a resource there is.As they start to run out of the resource people lose their jobs and start to leave.Towns will eventually become deserted,then no one will be there and it will be a ghost town. The Saulteaux,Cree,Blackfoot,Siksika,
Piikani,Kanai,and Dene First Nations developed and lived their own ways of life. They mostly hunted for their food. Sometimes they would trade for food. Mostly,they hunted for caribou,moose,deer,bison,elk,and sometimes they would smoke fish and kill birds. They would also pick and dry berries. For arts and crafts, they would crush the berries into paint.

During the 1700s the Francaphone came to the plains and started to explore the region ad trade with the First Nations. Smaller communities became larger once they set up trading posts. In the 1800s the railway was completed and many more trades people came thus making the towns bigger. All of these people came from all over the world. Agriculture is very important in the plains today because of the large areas of flat,fertile land. At the fur trading posts were the first gardens to be planted and taken care of.
Settlers from every where in the region supported animals such as chickens,pigs,cattle,and sometimes, but not very often,horses. When they first started to grow crops they would often start small because how expensive it was. They grew as they became more experienced.
Farming today has changed as we discovered more advanced technology. Some farmers are starting to use organic farming. Organic farming started because people were concerned about chemicals getting into their food. Natural Resources and Communities! The Interior Plains Region During the Winters it gets quite cold with lots of snow,and wind. Even though it may be freezing out, that doesn't mean you can't have any fun! Lots of children will go outside,maybe build a couple snowmen,have a few snowball fights,and make snow angels in the snow,of course!
In the Summer the temperature will rise and you had better wear sunblock,its gonna be sunny! Its not only fun in Winter though, when people have spare time on their hands a lot of them enjoy going out to the parkland areas and biking the whole day. People who work in the oil industry spend many hours outside in the sun, and many other weather conditions. They will work either in the middle of no where or near a town. Certain industry's provide lots of jobs and careers for other people. Some of the First Nations groups such as the Plains Cree,Piikani,and the Kainai lived in the grass lands near large sources of food and clean water. For food,clothing,and other important needs they would go to the bison,the walking Walmart's of the past. Many of the Dene would follow and hunt the caribou across the North.

In the 1720s,Pierre de La Verendrye set up forts with his sons and guide,a Cree man. The forts were set up along the Saskatchewan river in Manitoba. French, was the first spoken language from Europe brought over by the Europeans to the Plains. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !
