          John Prest fonds
          PR2012 · Fonds · [ca. 1922 – 1924]

          The fonds consists of 16 Black and White photographs, with the Cree peoples of Maskwacis are the predominate subject matter. Subjects include portraits, the Sun dance and the demonstration of traditional tools. Identification has been written on the back of the photographs. The photographs appear to have been used as promotional material for the Hudson’s Bay Company. For example, the photograph described as “Sun Dance,” Hobbema, Alta, Exterior of Sacred Shrine” is used in an article in The Beaver as “Shrine for Sun Dance” (John Prest, “Cree Sun Dance at Hobbema,” The Beaver, November 1923). Four of the photos which are numbered in series one to four and provided lengthy captions are photos that were taken as part of the filming of “The Last Frontier.” These photographs appear to have been taken by Philip H. Godsell (For further information see Associated Material).
