G-1979-042: S01 · Series · 1921-1951
Part of Northwest Territories. Legislative Assembly fonds

The series consists of signed minutes of the Council of the Northwest Territories during the period of appointed Council members. The minutes of the first five sessions are not signed, but they are clearly intended of to the be the official proceedings of the Council, and the signed versions can be found in Series 3. Regular and special sessions are numbered from 1921-1950.

A large number of attachments have been included with the minutes, but this has not been done consistently. These attachments include agendas, copies of correspondence, reports, some Ordinances (including some drafts), and minutes of related committees, including the Interdepartmental Reindeer Committee, Yellowknife Board of Trustees, and Hay River Board of Trustees. Some maps and photographs are also included.

G-1979-042: S03 · Series · 1921-1930, 1948-1951
Part of Northwest Territories. Legislative Assembly fonds

The files in this series contain the papers kept by the Secretary for each session. Although this practice continued until 1951, all of the files between 1929 and 1949 were probably destroyed before 1967. Although the files consist largely of copies which can also be found in the signed minutes (series 01), they also contain some additional information.

354-S02 · Series · 1972-2000
Part of Metis Nation of the Northwest Territories fonds

This series consists of records relating to the Locals of the Metis Association and Metis Nation in communities across what was at the time the western Northwest Territories, including Fort Smith (#50), Hay River (#51), Fort Simpson (#52), Fort Resolution (#53), Fort Good Hope (#54), Yellowknife (#55, #66, #77), Aklavik (#56), Fort Providence (#57), Fort McPherson (#58), Norman Wells (#59), Fort Norman/Tulita (#60), Inuvik (#62), Arctic Red River/Tsiigehtchic (#63), Rae/Edzo/Behchoko (#64), Pine Point (#65), Fort Liard (#67), and Fort Franklin/Deline (#75). Records, primarily minutes and correspondence, of other Metis-related organizations, including the South Slave Regional Council, South Slave Metis Tribal Council, North Slave Metis Alliance, and Hay River Metis Government Council are also included in this series.

The records include incoming and outgoing correspondence, meeting minutes submitted by the Locals, Constitutions and Bylaws of the Locals, budgets, financial records, affiliation applications and certificates, membership lists, activity reports, press releases, land use applications, Local Handbook, and information packages.The records also occasionally include meeting minutes of other community organizations.

The records would likely have originally been maintained as part of the central filing system under classification 210. However, the majority of the records had been gathered into a Locals series by the time they were processed by the Archivist. The Locals records still in the main filing system (1990-91, 1998-99, 1999-2000) were moved to the Locals series by the Archivist. The entire Locals series was arranged in essentially chronological order, while maintaining the sets of records originally apparent. Original order within the each file has mostly been maintained, although a change in the appraisal metric mid-way through processing meant that some records had to be reinserted, disrupting the original order. The files were also heavily weeded to remove duplicates.
