George tells the story of a year living in the bush. His family left Fort George and paddled inland. They paddled up the river towards George River. He killed two black bears that fall. They fished at Kaawaawaayaapiskaau as the ice formed. Fish was scarce and they had a hard time catching fish. When they moved to another lake, they caught more fish. One night, a man from Waashaau arrives at their camp. They were able to give him some supplies. He mentions it was the year the Queen`s father`s father died (circa 1936).

George tells a story of his life in the past. His family experienced hunger. They had cached food for the winter but crows and foxes ate everything from the cache. His family camped with people from Whapmagoostui at Apishikimiish (Lac Bienville). As they move further east towards Mistisiipii (George River), they meet up with Montagnais people from Waashaau (Sept Isles?). The Montagnais family was starving. George mentioned that it was hard to communicate with them. George helped the Montagnais by giving them some fish to use as bait for their fish hooks.

George tells a story of another winter where they were inland. As they moved inland, they met a Whapmagoostui man coming from the other direction. The man was already very thin from starvation. They lived together at Apishikimiish (Lac Bienville). At that camp, there were over 100 people. They didn`t have much success finding caribou. As George`s family moves away, they kill some caribou.

George talks about the preparation for the winter. They caught fish first before trapping to make sure they had food. The men set the nets under the ice and the women checked them. The men trapped far from camp. The men also hunted big game. If they camped at a good fishing lake, they did well. If there were no caribou, they lived on fish. In the spring, geese and ducks were hunted. In the summer, they paddled to Fort George. If they had killed big game, a feast was held. Josie Sam Sr. asks a few questions about the singing at feasts and types of lodges made in the past.

These men were paddling along a river with their pretty sister, when some nasty men on another canoe came heading in their direction. They asked the young girl if they could see her hat. Instead of giving it back they threw the hat in their canoe and told the girl to come and get it. That`s how they got the girl into their canoe.

This story is about his grandfather. He had only one son. His mother didn`t live with his father yet. It was around autumn. They saw someone walking. They thought they saw a bear.

They were looking for the bear. They made a fire, his brother felt scared. It seemed to him it wasn`t a bear they saw. That night, it was snowing hard. The path and their footsteps disappeared, their grandfather said to return.

In the past, children were introduced to the hunt at an early age. They fished with their mothers on the ice. The men set nets and fish hooks under the ice and the women checked them. Even if the men didn`t get anything from the hunt, sometimes the women and children caught fish to eat. When they traveled, the men simply left the camp in the early morning. The women broke camp and followed the trail of their husbands. The teepee was made with a large rock as the hearth. The men left their toboggans where they wanted the camp to be set up and left to hunt caribou. When they returned from hunting, the women and the elders were already setting up the new camp. If many caribou were killed, a feast was held and the elders sang with their drums. Samson mentioned that they camped at many different places during one winter because they were nomadic. If the hunt was successful, there was great joy at the camp.

Samson recalls the year he first got married. Samson, his wife his father and a young man and a girl traveled together. They traveled inland by canoe. As they sailed, he killed 3 bears. They reached his brother-in-law at Patukami Lake. That was the last year his brother-in-law was alive. They caught many fish during the spawning time. Caribou was becoming scarce. That winter, food became scarce. Samson and his brother-in-law had a chance to kill caribou but the caribou ran away. His brother-in-law seemed to know that he would die soon. One time during a blizzard, his brother-in-law left to go hunting, he fell into the river during the winter. His body could not be found.
