Before colonization, wild flax waved blue across the prairie. This is reported in the journals of Peter Fiddler, an early surveyor with the Hudson's Bay Company, one of the first white men to see the Rocky Mountains in Canada. Now factory farms and mining operations have banished this tiny flower to those undeveloped lands around the edges of civilization. Although not as strong as hemp, wild flax was used by Aboriginal peoples in similar ways.
