Creating this Website

Creating this website felt like creating a work of art – and that is exactly what we feel this website has become as we share the stories of Yvette Moore, her family and all the artisans we showcase in our incredible historical building. Take your time as you browse through all the pages and especially the videos of 11 of our artisans as they welcome us all into their studios and display the passion of what makes them create their works, tell their stories. With the support of Tourism Saskatchewan, we feel that we have accomplished what we were striving for – to educate our viewers about the creative space that our artisans live and breath in as they passionately hand make their works of art.

WAKAMOW VALLEY – River of Turns

Nestled along the Moose Jaw River, this beautifully treed valley has become one of Moose Jaw’s renowned historic locations.  On the south side of the river is the Lions River Park and looking further west is Plaxton’s Lake.  Plaxton’s Lake was Wakamow’s inaugural development and represents the confluence of the Moose Jaw River and Thunder Creek which was the water course that encouraged the CPR to create a rail stop.  The development of Moose Jaw as a city soon followed.

Wakamow means the “turn” in Plains Cree.  The name, pronounced WALK-A-MAW refers to the historic location in Kingsway Park where the river makes an abrupt turn from north to east.  Early natives and settlers knew this area as the “elbow” or “turn” of the Moose Jaw River.
