Ukrainian Pioneer Dwelling

Ukrainian Pioneer Dwelling

When Ukrainian settlers first arrived in the area west of Riding Mountain in 1899, their first homes were small, tent‑shaped pole structures with roofs of hay, known as buddas. Michael Swistun was born in one of these structures in 1900, and constructed two buddas near the original settlement trail.
