Mary Firth


As a child, Mary travelled the land with her parents. She remembers in September they would go up the Peel River and stay at their bush camp, returning to town only for a few days at Christmas. After New Years they would travel to the mountains to hunt caribou. Spring was passed hunting muskrats in the Mackenzie Delta and after June 15th, they would return to town, visit and then in July, go to the fish camp and make dry fish for the rest of the summer.
