            PR3998 · Collection · created 1976

            The collection contains reproductions of two photos that appeared in the November 1923 edition of The Beaver, taken from pages 45 and 46. The article that these photos were taken from was titled “Cree Sun Dance at Hobbema.” The article was written based on information collected by John Prest, one of the employees of the Edmonton Hudson’s Bay store who was allowed to witness the ceremony. As described by the article, this Sun Dance was the first to be held in four years in Maskwacis (then known as Hobbema)

            The first of these photos shows figures on horseback around a figure made of poles. The caption beneath this photo describes it as “Shrine for Sun Dance.”

            The second photo has 10 figures facing the camera, and has the following captions at the top: “November 1923, The Beaver, 45.” At the bottom the people appearing in the photograph are identified in the following caption: “White Guests and Their Indian Friends [including from Ermineskin Cree Nation] Who Attended the Sun Dance. Chief Samson; W.G. Askey; Head Man Louis Natuwasis; H.G. Munro; Old Man Kinewato; H. Taylor; Head Man Saddleback; J. Prest; Panny Ermineskin and Chief Louis Bull.”
