  • Fonds
  • [196-] - 1979

This fonds consists of approximately 9000 black and white negatives, four colour negatives, and a small number of black and white and colour print photographs taken by James Jerome in the 1960s and 1970s and 5 cm of reports and correspondence. The majority of the photographs date from the period 1977-1979. Many were taken in the Fort McPherson and Peel River region, and document life on the land, fur trapping, winter and summer camps, fishing camps and fish preparation and drying activities of the Gwich'in. In addition there are many portraits, a selection of self-portraits, family photographs, transportation and recreation photographs. Many of the print photographs are copies of the negatives. Photographs of Inuvik include the 1979 Northern Games, while photographs of Yellowknife include music concerts. The textual material includes a project description of Jerome's proposed 'Portraits and History of the Dene Elders of the NWT' publication as well as handwritten and typewritten notes on the project, and correspondence.

James Jerome

The photographs span 196-? to 1979 but the majority of the photographs date from 1977-1979. Many were taken in the Gwich’in Settlement Area on the Mackenzie and Peel Rivers, spanning camps upriver of Tsiigehtchic (Arctic Red River), and down towards Aklavik, and including the communities of Tsiigehtchic, Fort McPherson, Aklavik and Inuvik. These photographs document life on the land, fur trapping, winter and summer camps, and fishing camps of the Gwich'in. In addition there are many portraits, family photographs, transportation and recreation photographs. Photographs of Inuvik include a large series documenting the 1979 Northern Games, while photographs of Yellowknife include community events and music concerts. A series of photographs document a wedding outside of Lutselk’e (Snowdrift). The textual material includes a project description of Jerome's proposed book 'Portraits and History of the Dene Elders of the NWT' as well as handwritten and typewritten notes on the project, and correspondence.
