The north south divide: myth or reality?


The day we met Harry, Eabamatoong (Fort Hope)

We met Harry on our way into Fort Hope, or Eabamatoong in Ojibwa. The Eabamatoong First Nation lives on the shores of Eabamet Lake. Harry paddled us out to the Elders Island, where community members had gathered. Boys and young men welcomed us with traditional drumming. The elders invited us to join their campfire. We left the island shortly before sunset and reached Eabamatoong just in time to snap this shot of Harry.
