Going to the Community
- Nishnawbe Aski Nation, 2005 -
I lived in the bush with my family about twenty miles north of our home community. We used to go to the community at different times of the year to get supplies from the Hudson Bay Company store, things like flour, salt, tea, lard, and traps. When we went to the store my father always brought any furs to his account at the store. I like going to the community because I could go visit my grandparents who lived in the community all year. Sometimes I stayed with them until the next time my parents came back to the community. I often stayed from the whole summer.
