Cree Nation of Mistissini

Cree Nation of Mistissini

Dear Andrew Ė I have placed a couple of tings in a gallery - https://pbase.com/filmworks4ever/cree_nation_of_mistissini

The first is a thumbnail from the film I acquired - https://pbase.com/filmworks4ever/image/162267863 which is a 15 - 19 Kodachrome film from 1954. I am not at all related to the people in this film.

The second is a few slides of my fatherís who was a geophysicist and spent a lot of time working in Northern Quebec. These slides are probably from the early 60ís. https://pbase.com/filmworks4ever/image/162267862

My father is the guy holding the shovel. My mother remembers when my father had not shown up for weeks after he was due back in Toronto and eventually got in contact with the company he was working for. They explained they could not send a plane in for him because landing was not possible during the spring breakup. In any event this turned out not to be a big deal for the Cree working with my father as they turned the mining survey into a hunting trip and kept everyone fed for a month.

The third thing I would not is a couple of years ago I worked on some films for a director Gail Singer (probably NFB work) and a few of these films were about the Cree (unless my memory is going).
