Minnedosa (Tanner’s Crossing) Metis Scrip Applications
Tanner’s Crossing is situated on the Carlton Trail between Fort Garry and FortEdmonton.
 
Travelers enter the Little Saskatchewan Valley through a narrow eastern passwhere they descend one hundred and seventy-five feet to the valley floor.
 
In 1869, JohnTanner Jr. built a ferry across the Little Saskatchewan River on the Carlton Trail. He alsooperated a store and post office at this location. The Tanners were one of four originalMetis families to settle in this area. The heads of the four families were John Norquay,George Sanderson, Peter Sinclair and John Tanner. The area was a centuries old trappingand hunting area for the bison that wintered at Riding Mountain and moved down thevalley to the plains in the summer. In 1877, Tanner and J.S. Armitage accumulated landand laid out a townsite in the river valley. Armitage changed the name to Minnedosa in1883.
