N-2002-005: 2-1 · File · 1919-1920
Part of Norman Robinson fonds

This file consists of one journal comprised of 50 black and white photographs (N-2002-005: 0001 to 0050) and accompanying narrative dated between 1919-1920. The journal and accompanying images describe a trip that Robinson took with John Hornby from Edmonton to Peace River Crossing by train where they purchased supplies, including a canoe, for their trip to Fort Smith. This journal follows their expedition to the Hudson's Bay Company Red River post where they wintered for two months and trapped, before continuing on to Fort Smith. This album includes a sketch map of the trip from Peace River Crossing to Fort Smith. The photographs include images of John Hornby, Norman Robinson, trapping activities, camping, traveling by dog team and canoe, as well as photographs of scenery, rapids and posts at Fort Chipewyan and Fort Fitzgerald.

Robinson's description in his journal may cause offense because he uses outdated language to describe Indigenous Peoples including Inuit and peoples with mixed heritage. Please note that Robinson's journal also includes a racist and sexist slur for Indigenous women. We have reproduced the original as is because it is a part of the original historical record. If you have feedback or questions, please contact the NWT Archives.
