Christmas

Hattie Moses

Harry Moses

“At Christmas, David Moses gathered people from Nemaska and Mistissini for a feast. He invited us to his land – his birthplace – which he loved to share. Bears were eaten and beaver. There were no moose around then. That’s how it was – people helped each other with feasts.”

“David Moses – father of Harry Moses and Harriet Mark – was a very good man. When there were people nearby, he invited them to his camp. At one point he had 30 men living off his
hunting territory. He was like a chief!”
