How can we connect our neighbourhoods to larger histories?
What is the Source?
What is the Story? (Podcast)

Join Dr. Evan Habkirk (University of British Columbia, Okanagan) as he talks about using the local churches in your community as a place that can start discussions around the past, historical connections, and colonial ideas. 

By using a local church as a primary source, even from the outside, Dr. Habkirk discusses how we can connect out communities to larger themes in Canadian history, such as Residential schools, royal visits, and world wars. Reading churches as historical documents can connect to our present communities and bring the history of the community directly to the lives of students.

Your neighbourhood is as important to Canadian history as any textbook talking about New fFrance - Dr. Evan Habkirk
