Sarah Ann Gardlund


When Sarah Ann was a child, her parents spent the winter trapping and hunting caribou. The family passed the spring hunting muskrats in the Mackenzie Delta and summer was passed at their fish camp. After her mother and father were married, her father worked for the Hudson’s Bay Company in Fort McPherson. In 1921 they moved to the Mouth of the Peel village where her father built a big house. Her father made his living off his trap line in the winter and fishing in the summer.
