Canada. Northern Administration Branch

The records, transferred from the Federal Government in Ottawa to Yellowknife in 1967 include administrative and operational files. These files incorporate: correspondence, reports, vital statistic information, financial data, minutes, and a wide variety of reference material kept by the department. The files were classified via a numerical block system. The block system consisted of primary, secondary and tertiary levels such that a composite file number (for example 311-105-93) would represent a progression from general subject matter to a specific subject and/or location. The primary number block consisted of: 100 - Administration; 200 - Economic and Industrial Development; 300 - Engineering Projects; 400 - Forests and Game; 500 - Public Service; 600 - Education; 700 - Lands Division: Public Lands; 800 - Lands Division: Territorial Lands and Timber; 900 - Resources; 1000 - General files on settlements, associations, companies, provinces, foreign countries, Inuit affairs, and resources; 20 - Individual case files; 3 - Personnel and organizational files. These broad blocks were subsequently divided in smaller units and secondary and tertiary blocks. For example Forests and Games (400) subdivides into Warden Service (420), or Fisheries (430). None of the 700, 800 or 900 block files were forwarded to the NWT Archives. Moreover, at the time of transfer from Ottawa, it appears that other records from the file blocks brought to Yellowknife in 1967 were culled in Ottawa.

Arctic Red River Oral History Project

Records were generated by the Arctic Red River Oral History Project that was conducted by Alestine Andre between 1989 and 1990. The aim of the project was to collect information on the traditional lifestyle and cultural beliefs of the Gwichya Gwich'in in Arctic Red River. Ms. Andre compiled a list of the 13 oldest people in the community, and interviewed five who agreed to participate in the project. Those interviewed were Hyacinthe Andre, Jerome Andre, Joanne Nazon, Annie Norbert and Nap Norbert. The interviews are contained on 29 sound cassettes (:0001 to :0029). Also included in the accession are one transcript (file folder 2) and one file containing information related to the planning, funding and administration of the project (file folder 1). The sound recordings have been arranged in alphabetical order according to surname, and chronologically according to the date the interviews were conducted. The sound recordings are all in Gwich'in. Although Ms. Andre arranged for eight tapes to be transcribed, only one transcription, that of Joan Nazon's interview (recordings :0013 and :0014) was forwarded to the NWT Archives (this transcript is in English). The administration file includes copies of two contribution agreements with the Department of Culture and Communications; copies of financial records related to the project; and a final report titled "Oral Histories of Four Gwichya Gwich'in Elders Arctic Red River", which was compiled in March 1990. Signed waivers for Hyacinthe Andre, Jerome Andre, Joanne Nazon and Annie Norbert are available in the accession file. Copy of report and transcript in accession file.
