    Synopsis

    Punjabi Pioneers of Alberta is a documentary that salutes the first men from India whose ambition, adventurous spirit, and sheer determination led them to settle in Alberta at the dawn of the twentieth century. Set in the prairies of Alberta that just joined Canada, the story of Sohan Singh Bhullar of Edmonton, Harmon Singh Hari of Calgary and others emerge. Their names are on public record but who are they? Their indomitable personalities, amidst all their adversities and sacrifices, forged life long friendships that spawned legacies. These trail blazers will not fall into the shadows of history because their family and friends live on to tell the tale.
