ARTIFACT: This is an 1880s-1890s Elkhorn, Manitoba Indian Home brass button. Opened in 1888, the Washakada Indian Home at Elkhorn was a boarding school for aboriginal students, spearheaded by Reverend Edward Francis Wilson. Wilson was an Anglican missionary who had founded a similar campus in Quebec and then traveled through central Canada via the fledgling Canadian Pacific Railway. The original school was short-lived, as it burned in 1895, but it was rebuilt (photo credit: www.anglican.ca).
