The north south divide: myth or reality?


Helen on Elders Island, Eabamet Lake

We met Helen, an elder, on "Elders Island," a small island situated in the Eabamet Lake waterway. She giggled as she explained how Elders Island got its name. Originally, it was a place where elders would go to get away from it all. Now, the elders come to the island to remember the old days when people hunted, trapped and fished for a living. Helen reluctantly admits that times have changed, but insists that some of the old ways could be revived if people committed to working together.
