Doukhobors have lived in Saskatchewan for years, first arriving in They came to Canada with the hope of practicing their religion freely. Below are stories of two Doukhobor families and the clothing they brought with them.
Author Leo Tolstoy had heard about the plight of the Doukhobors in Russia and with the help of other sympathizers, sponsored their immigration to Canada. In7, followers of the Doukhobor faith emigrated from Russia for land and for religious freedom. The Canadian government promised exemption from military service and allowed Doukhobors to establish communal farming villages similar to those in Russia.
Inthe Canadian government, cancelled the agreement, requiring Doukhobors to abandon their villages for separate farmste. Some chose to comply with these Need Marcelin and stayed in Saskatchewan on their individual homeste, while those who refused had their homeste cancelled and subsequently resettled on purchased land in British Columbia, Alberta and elsewhere in Saskatchewan where they were able to continue their communal lifestyle.
InOnya and Fedyor Perehudoff travelled with thousands of others of Doukhobor faith to land set aside for them in Western Canada. It was the single largest mass migration in Western Canada history. When Onya Kabaroff wore this wedding ensemble for her marriage to Fedyor Perehudoff, there was no way of knowing that a new home in Canada was in their future. Likely made Need Marcelin her by her mother, the wool and linen of this garment were homespun, while the cotton and other fabrics were purchased on an annual trip to a larger town.
Onya and Fedyor, whose anglicized names became Anna and Fred, settled in the small Doukhobor village of Ospennia, near present day Blaine Lake, Saskatchewan. Most Doukhobors adopted a Canadian style of clothing not long after coming to Canada.
Onya, like most Doukhobor women, continued to wear her traditional outfit throughout her life for Sundays and special occasions.
Inyear-old Alex Nemanishen travelled to Canada with his family and thousands of others of the Doukhobor faith. The Nemanishen family settled in the small Doukhobor village of Kirilowka Kirilowvlanear present day Langham, Saskatchewan. Alex left Saskatchewan for work at a lumber mill in Brilliant, B. He hurt his leg while on the job, forcing him to use a cane for the rest of his life. After the accident he returned to Saskatchewan, using his carpentry Need Marcelin to earn money to buy land.
Inat 38 years of age, Alex Saskatchewan oral land near Langham, close to where Kirilowka village had been. By the time Alex died intraditions in Doukhobor communities had changed enough that he was not buried in the suit you see above. Anastia used her sewing machine to turn the cloth into a matching traditional shirt and trousers. It captures the oral history of Doukhobor elders and explores how the community has evolved since first immigrating to Saskatchewan years ago.
