The above photograph was probably taken in the ‘60s by Father Jean-Paul Tanguay.
It is a great photo, which shows old friends of mine who are, from left to right: George Dawson, Mary Luke, Emma Shorty and Roxy Carrier.
The group is seen proudly hefting some freshly caught giant salmon.
Mary Luke successfully ran this fish camp at Carmacks for over 50 years. Mary, with her husband Taylor McGundy, lived a traditional First Nation lifestyle — trapping, fishing, tanning skins, etc.
The only person in this photo still living is Emma Shorty. The others have passed away, but certainly are not forgotten.
Each of them are wonderful people.
