It consists of drumming and chanting taped in Jean Marie River and Fort Franklin, fiddle music from Fort Franklin and various Slavey legends related by Johnny Betseda of Fort Simpson and Jean Marie Punch of Fort Providence.

He also relates two other stories about summer and winter. The fonds also contains two letters written by Father Posset which provide some biographical information on Johnny Betseda, John Tsetso and Jean Marie Punch.

John Russell fonds
45 · Fonds · 1914-1930

This fonds consists of approximately 1100 photographs, 12 cm of textual material and 4 maps relating primarily to John Russell's survey work as a Dominion Land Surveyor in Northern Alberta and in the Northwest Territories. The photo albums document specific surveys that Russell worked on and most contain detailed captions and narrative describing survey events and conditions. A number of the remaining photographs, originally mounted on photo pages, appear to be from a file labeled "1924 Great Slave Lake; 1925 Peace River-Hay River-Great Slave Lake-towards Great Bear Lake; 1926 Wood Buffalo Park in Alberta and Northwest Territories; 1927 Aerial Photography, Comorant Lake to Wood Buffalo Park." Images feature the people and communities within these regions. The textual records consist of a series of draft articles entitled: "Charting our Northern Waterways in Sub-Zero Temperatures" and "A Surveyor's Impression of Northern Canada, Parts I, II, III;" a description of Marian River and Lakes between Great Slave Lake and Great Bear Lake; lists of plants, insects, dipteral and lepidopteron specimens collected by Russell on his surveys; and a history of Wood Buffalo Park. Other textual records include "The Ballad of the Ptarmigan," a poem removed from the 1925 Peace River photo album, an initial draft of "A Surveyor's Impression of Northern Canada," a bound Daily Journal from April 23 to September 30, 1925 which documents the Peace River survey and a notebook containing Russell's writings. The maps consist of a 1928 Department of Interior map of Hay River; a map fragment of Great Slave Lake that was annotated with Russell's 1921 survey comments; two maps which remain in the 1922 Athabasca-Great Slave Lake photo album; a map of Great Slave Lake, a map of Fort Resolution to Fort Reliance which is also annotated with Russell's survey notes and a Department of Interior map of the Mackenzie and Slave Rivers. There are a few aerial photographs and images of subject matter not related to the Northwest Territories and Russell's surveying expeditions.
