George Douglas had much interaction with the Coronation Gulf Inuit on his overland trips to the Coppermine River from Great Bear Lake in 1911-12. He had the chance to witness - and more importantly - document the end of a way of life. One one of his passages he cached some food enroute to the Coppermine in August 1911. When he returned a while later a small amount of food  was gone and a beautiful pair of handmade sealskin slippers, ivory carvings and spear tips and other items had been left as payment perhaps by some of the people pictured above.
