        Simeon, George
        N-1988-030 · Accession · [between 194- and 195-]

        This accession consists of eight black and white prints that were taken either at, or in the vicinity of, Kittiyakyut (Kittigazuit) in the Mackenzie Delta. They appear to date from the mid 1940s to the late 1950s. Kittiyakyut was a traditional whaling camp for the Inuvialuit who occupy the Delta. The images depict scows, tugboats, stages used to dry whale meat, and some of the Inuvialuit who occupied the region. Locations include Whitefish Point (Nalruriam Nuvuaq), Whitefish Station (Nalruriak), and Kittigazuit (Kittiyakyut).
