A video about the valley where I grew up.


Idiots got a couple of things wrong, though. They say the Town of Fort Qu'Appelle is situated between the Katepwa and Pasqua lakes.  Not so. Katepwa Lake is further downstream and Pasqua is further upstream. Fort Qu'Appelle is on a flat flood plain between Mission Lake and Echo Lake.

And the over-the-top romanticization of Native people is rather sickening, too.

I learned to skate on that river. Used to walk for miles along its banks and up the valley banks. Tobogganing down those valley banks in the winter was a blast, although rather dangerous, but we were invincible then. We were kids, after all.
