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.
