  • Roberts biggest concern for the future isn’t the pollution or climate change, but a change in how indigenous people live their lives. With all the money flowing out from the oil industry, jobs are easier to get, and therefore less and less people have time to practice their ancestral traditions. Not long ago the community of Fort Chipewyan relied on trappers and fishermen to support the community, but now most people buy their food in the local store. “The future for trapping doesn’t look good. We have evolved with our 8 hours jobs, and now we don’t have to worry about setting traps or catching fish to use as bait. Many of our traditions will disappear because of modernization,” he says. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
With this we've reached the end of my project, which I hope you've enjoyed. Nevertheless I would like to thank you for following along! All the best, David / @lethwilliams
  • Robert Grandjambe does a lot of fishing during the winter months. He knows about the alleged pollution of the rivers, and most of his catch goes to his dogs, but sometimes, if he catches a fish that looks particularly nice, him and his wife will eat it for dinner.
  • Fest, kaj og venner 🌟🕺🏼#kajgf #dmjx
  • Planen var, at jeg ville lægge en masse billeder op af deltagerne, fest og konfetti.🎉🎊 Men i går oplevede jeg, hvor vildt det kan være, at lave live-tv. Derfor blev det kun til et håbløst forsøg på et selfie med publikum.😒I løbet af den her uge, har jeg generelt fundet ud af, at jeg er en elendig fotograf, så det er nok meget godt, at det endte med at blive kommunikation!😅 #dmjx #dmjxminuge @laurahansen__

  • Robert Grandjambe has caugt the first rabbit of the year. He uses the skin to make a pouch, into which he stuffs the entrails. He uses this as bait to catch larger animals such as lynx.
  • Further north, in Fort Chipewyan, the hunting is still good. Robert Grandjambe has lived here all his life, and even though he can’t make as much money as he used to by selling fur, he still hunts in the traditional way by using traps.
