JANUARY 2006

Photographer: C.C. Farr

Teme-Augama Anishnabai Camp

A rare, pre-1900 photo of a Temagami First Nation camp, believed to be taken in the Lady Evelyn Lake area about 1890.

Three families are drying and smoking meat in the fall for the winter. The smoking tepee is sided with rush maps. A moose head is lying inside.

In the foreground, the animal heads are either woodland caribou or year-old moose.

The men (left to right): Michelle Katt, Mishay-nis Katt (possibly holding a HBC muzzle-loader), John Paul.

John Paul, who was chief at the time, is wearing a ceremonial head-dress.

The photo hung for decades in the A.B. Gordon Lumber Company office in Latchford. The mill closed in the late 1950s and today, the photo remains close by in the House of Memories museum. The photographer Charles Cobbold Farr was the founder of Haileybury.
