This collection consists of photographs from a photograph essay on traditional Yukon First Nations crafts including making snowshoes, tanning and smoking hides, preparing babiche, skinning fish, making a bark moose caller, toys, handicrafts and garments. Also environmental portraits of such local figures as Joe Henry, Eliza Farr and Ida Jonas. Some of the photographs were taken at Joe Henry's cabin at Wolfe Creek on the Dempster Highway, Yukon. Photographs were taken by Dawson City Museum employees Kathy Toombs and Sally Robinson, ca. 1977-1979.
