- Roman Yereniuk is an associate professor of St. Andrew’s College and a sessional lecturer in the Centre for Ukrainian Canadian Studies at the University of Manitoba. He teaches courses in Church history of Eastern Christianity and the experience of the Ukrainian Canadians. In addition, he is a school trustee with the Winnipeg School Division. As a creative writer and a storyteller in the Ukrainian Canadian community, Yereniuk has a passion for telling stories about Ukraine, Ukrainian Canadians, and multiculturalism. The digitized material from the Roman Yereniuk fonds consists of film reels of a 1935 rally in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan of the Canadian Ukrainian Youth Association (CYMK). They offer individual and group footage of young Ukrainians from the western region as well as scenes of the prairie city in the mid-thirties. There are some striking frames of the delegates participating in mass calisthenics.
