Creston's Larry Ewashen recently spoke at a conference in Saskatchewan.

Larry Ewashen of Creston was recently a guest speaker-commentator at a historic site in Saskatchewan.

This is the site of the original zemlanki, where Doukhobors first settled in 1900 and built dug out houses into hillsides for immediate shelter. The site is now a National Historic Site of Canada as well as a Saskatchewan Provincial Historic Site.

This year’s theme was Peter Verigin, and Ewashen, who carried out the designation of Verigin as a Person of National Historic Significance, was invited to moderate tours regarding his unsolved death in 1924.
